John Kerry meets Iran FM in Paris for more nuclear talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met in Paris on Friday to discuss negotiations for a nuclear deal, a US official said.



Paris: US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met in Paris on Friday to discuss negotiations for a nuclear deal, a US official said.

The pair, who held a marathon six-hour round of talks in Geneva earlier this week in a bid to nail down a deal, were taking the opportunity to meet again in the French capital on separate diplomatic trips.

Their talks lasted just under an hour, a US official said.

Zarif is also due to meet French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius while in Paris.

The new Zarif-Kerry talks came as their negotiators were also meeting in Geneva.

Global powers leading the talks, known as the P5+1 are due to open negotiations on Sunday in the Swiss city as a deadline looms for a comprehensive deal which would rein in Iran`s nuclear programme in exchange for relief from a tight network of sanctions.

Both sides have remained tight-lipped about whether any progress is being made.
