US, Iran diplomats meet at UN on sanctions, Syria

UNITED NATIONS – US Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in New York on Tuesday to discuss implementation of the Iran nuclear deal and ways Tehran can use its influence to end Syria’s civil war, officials said.

Kerry was expected to raise Tehran’s concerns over difficulties with accessing the global financial system despite the lifting of some US sanctions under the nuclear deal, US officials said on Monday.

Kerry and Zarif, who were talking behind closed doors at the Manhattan headquarters of the United Nations, declined to comment to reporters on their way into the meeting.
