Kerry says time to make ‘hard decisions’ in nuclear talks with Iran – Reuters
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday talks with Iran on curbing its nuclear program have made “genuine progress” and it was time to make “hard decisions” to reach a framework accord.
“We are not rushing … but we recognize that fundamental decisions have to be made now and they don’t get any easier as time goes by,” Kerry said.
“We have not yet reached the finish line but make no mistake we have the opportunity to try to get this right,” Kerry said, “It is a matter of political will and tough decision making … and we must all choose wisely in the days ahead,” he added.
He said he would meet his European counterparts in London later on Saturday to discuss how to resolve remaining unresolved issues with Iran and would return to Lausanne next week “to determine whether or not an agreement is possible”.
