US officials talking about possible UN meeting between Obama and Iran’s Rouhani

Obama is probably trying to not get embarrassed by Putin again.
Check it out:

The Obama administration is preparing for high-level meetings next week with the Iranian government on its nuclear ambitions and is open to a direct exchange between President Barack Obama and Iran’s new president, Hasan Rouhani, at the United Nations, according to senior U.S. officials.

The recent softening between Washington and Tehran gained new momentum with the release by Iran in recent days of 11 political prisoners, including a prominent human-rights lawyer freed on Wednesday. The releases were seen as a signal to Washington of a desire for better relations on the eve of Mr. Rouhani’s first visit as president to the annual gathering of world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly.

Both Messrs. Rouhani and Obama will address the General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

White House officials said Mr. Obama currently has no planned meeting with Mr. Rouhani. But the two sides have communicated ahead of what could be the first face-to-face interaction between an American and a president of the Islamic republic.
