Kerry presses Iran FM on nuke deal outline by end of March

MUNICH (AP) -- A U.S. official says Secretary of State John Kerry has pressed Iran's foreign minister on the Obama administration's desire to reach the outline of a nuclear deal by the end of March.

This official says that Kerry told Mohammed Javad Zarify the U.S. wants to meet the March target for the "political framework" of a final agreement to be done by summer. The pair met for two hours on the sidelines of a security conference in Munich. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because this official wasn't authorized to discuss the meeting publicly.

The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany will resume negotiations with Tehran soon, with an eye on the March target that they set in November after missing two earlier deadlines.
