White House Denies Iran Report

After four years of secret back-and-forths between American and Iranian diplomats, Iran has agreed to one-on-one negotiations with the United States over its nuclear program, The New York Times is reporting. The Times cites senior government officials who say Iran is looking to avoid military intervention, but has stipulated the talks can only occur only after the presidential election. The White House vehemently denied the Times's report Saturday, saying "it’s not true that the United States and Iran have agreed to one-on-one talks or any meeting after the American elections."
