Kerry says 'too early' to tell if Iran deal sealed

Iran denies it is trying to produce atomic weapons and insists the Bushehr reactor and its other nuclear facilities are purely for peaceful energy needsUS Secretary of State John Kerry warned Monday it was too soon to tell if a nuclear deal with Iran is possible as he awaited the return of Iran’s foreign minister from consultations in Tehran. “We’re just working and it’s too early to make any judgements,” Kerry told reporters in Vienna as he met with Yukiya Amano, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The UN watchdog will have a crucial role in verifying Iran’s claims that its nuclear programme is purely peaceful and also to make sure it does not cheat in the future.
