Failure bound to ensue.

Via Washington Examiner:

Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif later this week to discuss Tehran’s nuclear program, theWhite House announced on Monday.

Kerry and Zarif’s meeting will mark the highest-level of talks between the U.S. and Iran since the 1979 Iranian revolution.

Zarif is slated to meet with Kerry and other ministers from the P5+1 group, which is negotiating a deal over Iran’s nuclear energy program.

The meeting comes following the election of new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who is viewed as a centrist, and has reached out to the U.S.

President Obama and Rouhani are both slated to address the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Tuesday and the White House has suggested that the two leaders may briefly speak.
