Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in the United Arab Emirates yesterday to brief the US ally on talks with Iran on its nuclear programme and efforts to hold Syria peace talks.

He flew in from Geneva where three days of marathon talks which stretched into early yesterday failed to produce an interim deal under which Iran would suspend parts of its enrichment programme in return for sanctions relief.

Despite leaving without an agreement after his surprise decision to re-route his 10-day Middle East tour via the Swiss city, the top US diplomat insisted western powers were "closer now" to ending the decade-long standoff with Tehran.
