TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's official news agency says the country's foreign minister has no plans to meet with U.S. officials during a security conference this month in Munich, Germany.
Sunday's report quotes Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki as saying he and Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani will attend the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy but have no plans to talk to U.S. officials.
