Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and top US diplomat John Kerry will join new talks on Tehran's nuclear programme in Geneva later this week, an Iranian diplomat said Thursday.
Iran and world powers are trying to strike a deal that would prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb, a goal it denies having, in return for an easing of punishing economic sanctions.
Zarif and Kerry will join the negotiations from Sunday after their diplomats begin the talks on Friday, Iran's deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.
