Kerry prepares return to Iran talks fray

US Secretary of State John Kerry (L) talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on May 30, 2015 in GenevaTop US diplomat John Kerry said Tuesday he is preparing to resume tough nuclear talks with Iran only weeks after breaking his leg, as Washington works to nail down a deal putting an atomic bomb out of Tehran’s reach. Appearing by live video feed from his home in Boston where he is recovering after surgery and almost two weeks in hospital, Kerry said he would fly back to Washington later Tuesday to plan key talks with China early next week. “That will be the prelude to my departing at some point — we’re not exactly sure of the date” for the next talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif, possibly in Vienna, he said.
