British Prime Minister David Cameron will be meeting Iran’s President Hasan Rouhani after two days in New York for their first bilateral talks ever since the 1979 revolution. Before the leaders could set their first meet, talks had been carried out between UK’s foreign secretary Philip Hammond and the Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at UN general assembly that was held in New York.
After the meeting Hammond had laid out their main topic of discussion that included bilateral relations and reaffirming their commitments so that their embassies can be reopened once again. There was also discussion on Iran’s nuclear programs, their approach to human rights and of the treatment of a number of British-Iranian dual nationals that were detained in Iran.
