Kerry: US 'prepared to negotiate in good faith' with Iran

US Secretary of State John Kerry said Iran still had time to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff over its nuclear programme but added that they must negotiate with world powers in good faith.

The window for a diplomatic solution simply cannot by definition remain open forever. But it is open today. It is open now.

There is still time but there is only time if Iran makes the decision to come to the table and negotiate in good faith. We are prepared to negotiate in good faith, in mutual respect in an effort to avoid whatever terrible consequences could follow failure. And so the choice really is in the hands of the Iranians. And we hope they will make the right choice.

– John Kerry, US Secretary of State
