Kerry to Join Iran Nuclear Talks

Secretary of State John Kerry planned to fly to Geneva on Friday to join the talks on imposing a temporary freeze on Iran’s nuclear program, a sign that the negotiations are edging close to an agreement.

Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement that Mr. Kerry had decided to go after having consulted with Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s top foreign policy official and lead negotiator for the big powers in the talks with Iran.

Ms. Psaki said his goal was to “help narrow the differences and move closer to an agreement.”

The aim of the accord is to halt much of Iran’s nuclear program for six months so negotiators have time to pursue a more comprehensive accord.
