Iran: Nuke Talks With US Unlikely      07/19 06:15

   TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's chief of staff 
claims the president rejected eight requests from President Donald Trump last 
year for one-on-one talks.

   It's the latest comment from Tehran suggesting Iran isn't prepared to embark 
on bilateral negotiations with Washington.

   Trump earlier this year pulled America out of the international deal meant 
to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon. He said last week that with 
increased American sanctions, "at a certain point they're going to call me and 
say 'let's make a deal.'"

   State-owned IRAN newspaper quoted Rouhani's chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi 
saying Thursday that "it's been the reverse, so far," with Trump seeking to 
initiate talks.

   He says Iran rejected the requests from the U.S. for the two presidents to 
meet at last year's UN General Assembly meeting.
