MUNICH, Germany (AFP) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday pledged good faith in talks to dispel Western fears over Iran's nuclear programme, after a rare meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Iran will enter the next round of talks later this month "with political will and good faith to reach an agreement," Zarif said.

It would be "foolish of us (and) ... a disaster for everyone" if the process did not lead to definitive results, Zarif told a panel at the Munich Security Conference.

World powers hold another round of talks with Iran on February 18 after reaching an initial accord in November to curb uranium enrichment and open up nuclear facilities to allay concerns Tehran is seeking to acquire atomic weapons.
