Reports said that Iran and the P5+1 group of countries will also hold deputy and expert-level talks over Tehran's nuclear work on the sidelines of the event. Zarif, who will deliver a speech at the event, is scheduled to hold separate meetings with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, and some foreign ministers of the P5+1 during the trip.
