Iranian president’s visit to UN meeting may be canceled as US hasn’t issued visa

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his accompanying delegation may not be able to attend the annual UN General Assembly meeting in New York as the United States has so far failed to issue visa for the visit.

According to the plan, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is scheduled to leave Tehran for New York on Friday and the president on Monday.

According to IRNA, if visas are not issued in the next few hours, the visit will likely be canceled.
