Iran holds 'constructive' high-level nuclear talks with world powers (Deutsche-Welle, 9/26/13)

After the meeting, Kerry told reporters the negotiations with Zarif had proved "constructive." He praised the foreign minister's presentation "which was very different in tone, and very different in the vision that he held out with respect to the possibilities in the future."

But he stressed that words alone were not enough to convince western powers that Tehran was not seeking to develop a nuclear weapon.

"We've agreed to try to find a way to answer the questions that people have about Iran's nuclear program," Kerry said. "Needless to say, one meeting and a change in tone, that was welcome, does not answer those questions."

Speaking after Kerry, Zarif reiterated that the meeting had been "very constructive" and "very businesslike."
