President Obama will speak at the United Nations General Assembly meeting next Tuesday, an annual visit that will attract greater attention this year amid U.S. efforts to disarm Syria's chemical weapons and speculation about renewed talks with Iran. Obama will have a chance to greet new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at his debut U.N. gathering. The White House has said Obama is open to sitting down with Rouhani, which would mark the first meeting between U.S. and Iranian presidents since 1979.
