Window for Iran diplomacy 'cracking open': Kerry
LONDON (AFP) - United States Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said the window for diplomacy with Iran was "cracking open" following talks in London with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
Mr Kerry met Ms Ashton in London for talks covering Syria and the forthcoming meeting between Iran and world powers, according to a State Department official.
The two-day talks kick off in Geneva on Tuesday amid raised hopes of a less hardline approach from the Islamic republic's new president, Mr Hassan Rouhani, a reputed moderate who took office in August.
"Right now, the window for diplomacy is cracking open," Mr Kerry told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee summit in Washington via satellite from London.
