NEW YORK (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting with his Iranian counterpart for the first time since they agreed to a framework for a nuclear deal earlier this month.

Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif sat down Monday in New York at the Upper East Side home of Iran's ambassador to the United Nations. Kerry and Zarif are both in New York to attend a United Nations conference on nuclear non-proliferation.

Their meeting comes as negotiators are trying to meet an end-of-June deadline for a comprehensive agreement that would put curbs on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
