Tehran, Oct 10, IRNA-Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami on Tuesday rejected allegations he met with certain officials of the United States Administration during a recent visit to the US.
Khatami made the denial in reaction to certain foreign media reports saying the US Administration recently sent intermediaries to hold unofficial talks with him.
"The issue is totally untrue. There were no meeting and no talks," he said.
He said he has no knowledge of the sources of such news, adding that while he did attend meetings in the US, he had no meetings with US officials.
"There was a request for a meeting by (former US president Jimmy Carter) but since I did not have the time I apologized."
