No Rouhani-Trump meet on United Nations sidelines

No Rouhani-Trump meet on United Nations sidelines

The United States has concluded that an attack on Saudi oil facilities was launched from Iran, a U.S. official said on Tuesday as Vice President Mike Pence again warned that the USA military is "locked and loaded" for a possible response.

"I never rule anything out, but I prefer not meeting him", Trump said.

Meanwhile, Iran's supreme leader ruled out negotiations with the U.S. "at any level" after Washington pinned blame for the attack on Tehran.

After Abe and Rouhani agreed on Japanese assistance in the fields of medicine and disaster prevention during their talks previous year in NY on the fringes of the United Nations meeting, Iranian officials made repeated requests for medical aid, including the supply of advanced equipment, the sources said. Trump's "maximum pressure" policy to bring Iran to its knees appears to have failed, with maximum pressure having now shifted on allies Saudi Arabia, the UAE and a president up for re-election who wants to avoid getting embroiled in a predictable conflict he created by pulling the United States out of the nuclear deal.

Snowden said a fair trial won't be possible as the government won't allow him to take a public interest defense. Speaking to CBS, Snowden said he was "not asking for a parade".

Tokyo believes medical assistance for Iran would not breach USA sanctions against the Middle Eastern country given that humanitarian supplies are exempted from its sanctions list, they said.

The attacks were claimed by Yemenis Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

"It was an attack on all of us and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel, but I think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of what happened after 9/11", she said Sunday. Attacks on either location would significantly impede Iran's ability to process and sell oil, which the Trump administration has already been working to restrict after pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal.
