On Tuesday, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has ruled out negotiation talks with the United States, as tension heightened between the arch-foes after Washington has blamed Tehran for a drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil installations. 

Mr. Khamenei was quoted saying on his official website, “The policy of ‘maximum pressure’ against the Iranian nation is worthless and all Islamic Republic of Iran officials unanimously believe there will be no negotiations with the US at any level.”

On Sunday, the White House has said that the United States President Donald Trump could meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York in the coming week. 

Washington and Tehran have been loggerheads since May 2018, when President Donald Trump has withdrawn the US from the 2015 Nuclear Deal and started reimposing crippling sanctions. 

Iran replied by scaling back its commitments under the landmark tender, which offered it the promise of sanctions relief in return for curbs on the nuclear deal. 

The United Nations General Assembly debate is scheduled to open on September 24 in New York.
