US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will give on-camera press briefing at 7:40pm, according to a White House statement. There are no details specifying what Tillerson will address in briefing, but we note that he was set to meet today with counterparts from Iran and countries that signed Iran nuclear deal.

As AP reported earlier, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has opened the highest-level meeting between U.S. and Iranian officials since the start of the Trump administration.

Tillerson is meeting at the United Nations with diplomats from the nations that are part of the 2015 nuclear deal. The group includes Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif walked into the meeting first. He was followed by Tillerson and then U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov came in after.

The meeting comes as Trump decides whether to withdraw from the nuclear deal.
