Iran nuclear deal could be reached in months: Kerry
WASHINGTON (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday a deal with Iran could be brokered within months if Teheran proves that its nuclear program was not being used to build atomic weapons.
In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" program, Mr Kerry said the stated desire by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for an agreement within three to six months could be met sooner if Iran satisfied certain conditions.
"It's possible to have a deal sooner than that - depending on how forthcoming - and clear Iran is prepared to be," Mr Kerry said.
"We need to have a good deal here. And a good deal means that it is absolutely accountable, failsafe in its measures to make certain this is a peaceful programme.
