Kerry: still confident US can conclude Iran nuclear deal
Luebeck (Germany): Secretary of State John Kerry says he is still confident that the US administration can conclude a nuclear deal with Iran after President Barack Obama agreed to sign legislation giving Congress the right to reject an agreement.
Kerry joined his counterparts from the Group of Seven industrial powers at a meeting in northern Germany on the gathering’s second day after meeting lawmakers in Washington.
The G-7 meeting’s host, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said Wednesday ministers will discuss the situation in the US, which has “a certain influence” on whether a deal with Iran can be achieved by a June 30 deadline.
Kerry said: “We are confident about our ability for the president to negotiate an agreement, and to do so with the ability to make the world safer.”
