UK’s Cameron likely to meet Rouhani in NYC


Britain’s PM is likely to have a historic sit-down with Iran’s Rouhani in New York.

British Prime Minister David Cameron will reportedly meet with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

It would be the first bilateral talks between a UK prime minister and an Iranian president since Iran’s Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Rouhani and Cameron are likely to discuss the threat posed by ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria, British media reported on Tuesday. Iranian officials have so far made no comments about the likely meeting.
