Kerry to rejoin Iran nuke talks in Vienna

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State John Kerry is rejoining the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna as negotiators race to meet a June 30 deadline to complete an agreement.

The State Department said in a one-sentence statement on Wednesday that Kerry would leave for the Austrian capital on Friday. It will be his first overseas trip since breaking his leg in a bicycle accident earlier this month after a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Geneva.

Diplomats from the United States, the other four permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany have been in intense discussions with Iranian officials in Vienna as the end-of-month deadline for a deal looms.
