Meeting in Washington, Secretary of State John Kerry and EU foreign-policy chief Catherine Ashton underscore their preference for a diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear program.
With world powers set to resume what have been off-and-on talks with Iran on its nuclear program, Secretary of State John Kerry and European Union foreign-policy chief Catherine Ashton underscored their preference for a diplomatic solution when they met in Washington Thursday.
“We are not going to get trapped into a delay-after-delay process here,” Kerry said as he greeted United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the State Department Thursday morning. Referring to the international talks set for Feb. 26 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, Kerry said it will be “incumbent on the Iranians to prove that they are prepared to meet our willingness, President Obama’s willingness ... to be open to a diplomatic resolution.”
