Iran, US meet for nuclear talks
(06-10 19:20)

Tehran and Washington began a second day of talks in Geneva on Iran's contested nuclear program, amid a fresh diplomatic drive in the face of a July deadline for a deal.
Washington warned of ''tough choices'' in the crunch negotiations, as fellow world powers braced to meet with the Islamic republic to try to build momentum.
Senior officials from Iran and the United States sat down behind closed doors in Geneva's upscale Hotel President Wilson, which was sealed off to the media.
The talks are expected to last all day.--AFP
