Trump ready to meet with Iran's representatives at UN General Assembly - Pompeo

US State Secretary Mike Pompeo said in an interview released on Sunday that US President Donald Trump was ready to engage in a constructive dialogue with Iran's representatives and possibly meet them at the UN General Assembly in New York.

"I think the president has been pretty clear about that. He is happy to talk with folks at any time… If there is a constructive dialogue to be had, let's get after it," Pompeo told NBC broadcaster, answering a question about Trump's possible meetings with the Iranian leadership in New York.

Earlier in the week, US Permanent Representative to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that Tehran had requested a meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Trump within the framework of the UN General Assembly, which was then refuted by the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
