Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Tuesday that the Iranian foreign minister is unlikely to hold talks with his U.S. counterpart in the ongoing international conference on Afghanistan held in Kabul.

Meetings between the Iranian and U.S. officials are impossible, considering the U.S. hostile policies against Tehran including attempts to issue anti-Iran resolutions in the international arena and its unilateral sanctions against the country, he said.

Iran on Monday turned down a visit offer to Tehran by U.S. Senator John Kerry, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Head of Iran's Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Iran turned down a request made by U.S. Senator John Kerry to pay a visit to Tehran because the U.S. Democrats proved inconsistent in word and action.

Since there is no change in the U.S. policy concerning the Islamic Republic after President Barack Obama took office last year, there will be no change in Iran's policy as well, Boroujerdi said.
