Kerry, Zarif to meet for nuclear talks

Sunday, 22 February 2015 - 12:31

US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives in Geneva today for renewed talks with his Iranian counterpart on Tehran's nuclear programme, after warning "significant gaps" remain as a key deadline approaches.

World powers are trying to strike a deal with Iran that would prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb in return for an easing of punishing international economic sanctions.

Kerry is set to sit down for two days of talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, whose country denies its nuclear programme has military objectives.
