Iran Nuclear Talks

FILE - This is a Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, file photo of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, left, as he updates the audience on the results of his bilateral meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry alongside Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during a address and discussion hosted by the Asia Society and the Council on Foreign Relations at the Hilton Hotel in New York. Iran has suddenly gone public with a significant concession just days ahead of a new round of talks with six world powers later this week in Geneva. It still insists that it has a right to the program, but it now says that the six no longer need to publicly acknowledge its claim, opening a way to sidestep the dispute and focus on more practical steps both sides can agree on. Less than two months ago, President Hassan Rouhani conditioned any agreement on recognition by the United States and its allies of such a right. But with both sides hoping to seal a deal at meetings that start Wednesday Nov. 20, 2013, Tehran tweaked its message last Sunday (AP Photo/John Minchillo, File)
