Kerry to join other top diplomats for Iran nuclear talks

By CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto

In a possible sign of a breakthrough, several top diplomats - including those from the United States, Russia, the European Union and Iran - met in or headed to Geneva on Friday for talks on Tehran's nuclear program.

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that Secretary of State John Kerry would depart for the Swiss city "later today with the goal of continuing to help narrow the differences and move closer to an agreement." The American diplomat is expected to land there around 7:45 a.m. Saturday (1:45 a.m. ET), according to a Western official.

    Because the hard liners sense the US is desperate for a deal, there is no talk of human rights considerations. This is a grave mistake. You just have to look at similar Cold War deals with the Soviets where we always extracted human rights considerations. The UN General Assembly must pass a resolution reiterating its demands that Iran halt violations against its citizenry.

    MUSLIM PRIESTS / CLERICS just like Rouhani and the Ayatollahs are in charge and behind ALL the weapons negotiations, Iranian army control, coercion, war, murders, threats, violence and intimidation. It seems we are negotiating with SATAN'S DISCIPLES. The root of the problem are the "Satanic Verses" of the Qu'ran and prophet Mohammed's immoral, perverse, cruel and discriminatory conduct which are the role models for millions of brainless Muslims Unless there is A MASSIVE CONVERSION OF MUSLIMS TO CHRISTIANITY, this global Islamic madness and violence will never end.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    I think Iran have full right to have domestic nuclear. Even if it is for defence, they have the right. Afterall some nations have for defense.
