Iran's Rouhani Austria’s Fischer to meet at UN General Assembly

Politics - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Austrian counterpart, Heinz Fischer, are expected to hold talks on the sidelines of the 68th annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

The meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, is expected to focus on bilateral relations and international issues.

Rouhani is also scheduled to meet with French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday to discuss the crisis in Syria and Iran's nuclear energy program.

Later in the day, Rouhani will meet with Pakistani Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and Fijian Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle will also meet with the Iranian president on Tuesday night.
