Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his American counterpart John Kerry started a new round of talks in the Swiss town of Lausanne to hammer out an agreement on Iran’s nuclear problem.
The two ministers were scheduled to confer on Sunday evening, but the meeting was postponed due to Kerry’s tardy arrival in Lausanne.
