US issued visas for Iranian delegates
The United States has issued visas to Iranian President Hassan Rohani and his foreign minister. They can therefore travel to New York for the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Iranian state media reported Wednesday that the visit to the General Assembly was in doubt. The US had not issued visas to the Iranian top officials for an unclear reason. The Iranian UN mission confirms that that has happened now.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is leaving for New York on Friday, his spokesperson said Thursday.
