URGENT ¥¥¥ Kerry sees 'diplomatic path' on Iran nuclear issue

US Secretary of State John Kerry insisted on Tuesday there was a "diplomatic path" to be forged with Iran on its disputed nuclear programme, as world powers and Tehran held crunch talks.

"There is a diplomatic path," said Kerry after meeting his German counterpart Guido Westerwelle. He expressed his "hope" that "Iran itself will make its choice to move down the path of a diplomatic solution."
