US seeking a new treaty with Iran: Report

*WASHINGTON - The United States is seeking to negotiate a treaty with Iran to include Tehran’s ballistic missile program and its regional behaviour, the US special envoy for Iran said on Wednesday ahead of UN meetings in New York next week.*

Iran has rejected the US attempts to hold high-level talks since President Donald Trump tore up a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers earlier this year.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo listed a dozen demands in May that he said could make up a new agreement, although Hook’s reference to a treaty, which would have to be approved by the US Senate, appears to be a new focus.
