Iran has denied it suggested to six world powers that it may be open to talks about its ballistic missile arsenal, following a report by Reuters it is seeking to reduce tension over the disputed program.Iranian and Western sources familiar with the overtures said that given U.S. President Donald Trump's threats to ditch the deal reached under his predecessor Barack Obama, Tehran had approached the powers recently about possible talks on some "dimensions" of its missile program.A former U.S. Defense Department official said Iran's overtures had reached Washington in recent weeks.A senior Iranian official, who also asked not to be identified, said pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani, Zarif and Revolutionary Guard commanders have had several meetings with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the last say on all Iranian policy, to secure his backing for missile talks.
