Iran foreign minister blames West for nuclear talks breakdown
ReutersDUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry late on Tuesday and blamed divisions between Western powers for the failure of talks over Tehran's disputed nuclear program in Geneva last week.
Responding to remarks by Kerry in Abu Dhabi on Monday, Zarif said that blaming Iran only served to undermine confidence in the negotiations which are set for another round on November 20.
The United States, the European Union and Iran worked intensively together for months on a proposal to help end the 10-year stand-off over Iran's nuclear program, diplomats said, but talks in Geneva between Tehran and six world powers to agree the deal ended on Saturday without agreement.
