The MFA spokesperson spoke about the result of the visit of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to New York. Mousavi noted that the US was not interested in Iran's participation in the 74th session of the UN General Assembly: “That's why issuing visa for Rouhani delayed. The US wanted to prevent Iran from revealing its position in the UN. However, the Iranian delegation participated more actively in the session and held productive meetings."
