British Prime Minister David Cameron will meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, according to The Guardian.

The two leaders are expected to discuss the US-led military campaign against the Islamic State.

This is the first time that a British premier has met with an Iranian president since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

The White House said on Friday it did not expect President Barack Obama and Rouhani would hold a meeting when they are in New York.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said more details on individual meetings between Obama and world leaders at the United Nations would be announced early next week, but he did not anticipate one with Rouhani being added to the schedule.

Last year Obama and Rouhani, then the newly elected president, held a historic telephone call but did not get together as some had expected at the UN gathering.
