The U.S. and Russia are set to hold their first high-level talks since sealing a deal to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons and the onset of an apparent warming between Iran and the West.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are to meet on Monday to discuss both issues on the sidelines of an economic summit in Indonesia. They will be comparing notes on progress made since they negotiated the Syria agreement.

They will also be talking about Iran and efforts to get it to come clean about its nuclear program. The same day the U.N. Security Council approved the Syria resolution, President Barack Obama and Iran's new president spoke by phone in the first leader-to-leader contact between the two nations since 1979.
