Rouhani's visa was issued, however, with limited and restricted travel restrictions - the Iranian president can only travel between his place of accommodations in Manhattan, the United Nations headquarters and the Iranian embassy.

"Nothing is ever off the table completely, but I have no intention of meeting with Iran, and that doesn't mean it doesn't happen", Trump told reporters on September 22.

On Sunday, the United States said that it is ready to deploy its emergency reserves to offset possible shortages. "It's not set up".

The United States has said it would make its case against Iran at the UN meeting. He said there were "many options" other than the "ultimate option", meaning "go in-war".

French President Emmanuel Macron is due to meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose countries are also parties to the nuclear deal, on Monday, as well as Mr Trump and Mr Rouhani. More information about the deployment will be determined in the coming days, but it wouldn't involve thousands of US troops, according to Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said "the United Kingdom is attributing responsibility with a very high degree of probability to Iran" for the attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure, the UK's Press Association news agency reported Monday.

Dunford told reporters the extra equipment and troops would give the Saudis a better chance of defending against unconventional aerial attacks.

"I find it, from the information I have seen, I find it entirely implausible and lacking in credibility to suggest that those attacks came from Houthi rebels", Raab told the BBC, but he declined to say to whom Britain attributed the attacks.

Given the recent geopolitical incident in the Middle East, the Senate Committee on Energy is urging the Energy department to draw up short- to long-term mitigating measures that the country can lean on amid oil price shocks that may be triggered by events akin to the confounding drone strike on the facilities of giant oil producer Saudi Aramco.

The US is sending more troops to Saudi Arabia after an attack on Saudi oil facilities both nations blame on Iran. He added that this was "a state-on-state act of war".

'We think it very likely indeed that Iran was indeed responsible for using both UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), both drones and cruise missiles. After the attack the Pentagon ordered USA troops to reinforce Saudi air and missile defenses.

Rouhani departed Tehran for NY on Monday to attend the UNGA on a mission to win Iran support against "cruel" pressure from the United States.
