Agreement on Iranian nuclear program could come soon: Kerry

Eurasia News

WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State John Kerry has said that an agreement on Iranian nuclear program could come within three to six months as intensifying diplomatic efforts to resolve the dispute continue, Dispatch News Desk reported.

The agreement would have the potential to dramatically improve the relationship between the two countries, Kerry said in an interview.

“It’s possible to have a deal sooner than that depending on how forthcoming and clear Iran is prepared to be,” Kerry said. “If it is a peaceful program, and we can all see that – the whole world sees that – the relationship with Iran can change dramatically for the better and it can change fast.”

Kerry further said Iran could prove its sincerity by immediately opening its nuclear facilities to inspections and keeping its uranium enrichment efforts at lower grades that were not suitable for military use.
