The State Department said Kerry and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif would meet Monday in New York where both men are participating in a conference at the United Nations on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

The meeting comes as nuclear negotiators try to complete a comprehensive agreement by the end of June.

The State Department said that in addition to his meeting with Zarif, Kerry will also see the foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan at the U.N.
