Iran shows new urgency to revive nuclear talks

UNITED NATIONS — Iran showed new urgency Wednesday to revive stalled negotiations with six world powers over its disputed nuclear activities, seeking to ease crippling international sanctions as quickly as possible.

New Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said "we have nothing to hide" as diplomats prepared to meet today to discuss the way forward on the negotiations that have been on hold since April.

Rouhani's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who has been tasked as the lead nuclear negotiator, said he hoped his counterparts from six world powers — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — "have the same political will as we do to start serious negotiations with a view to reaching an agreement within the shortest span of time."
