Topic: Senior U.S., Iranian officials to meet Monday-Tuesday in Geneva

By Arshad Mohammed and Louis Charbonneau WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Senior American and Iranian officials will meet on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva, the U.S. State Department said on Saturday, in an apparent bid to break a logjam in wider nuclear negotiations that resume later this month. *** The U.S. delegation will be led by Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns, who conducted the secret negotiations that helped bring about the Nov. 24 interim nuclear agreement between Iran and the major powers. It will also include the senior U.S. negotiator with Iran, Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman. The most recent round of nuclear talks between Iran and the six powers in Vienna last month ran into difficulties, with each side accusing the other of having unrealistic demands in negotiations aimed at curbing Tehran's atomic program in exchange for an end to sanctions. The U.S. decision to head to Geneva and meet with the Iranian delegation, which a senior U.S. official said might be led by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, appeared to reflect Washington’s desire to break the deadlock.
