Iran is open to talks with the United States on a lasting nuclear deal but the place for them is at the negotiating table of signatories to the existing pact, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Sunday. “We’re ready to talk. We’re ready to talk but talk in terms of something that is not going to be valid only for the next one and a half year or five and a half years. We need to talk about something that is permanent,” he said in an interview with CBS. The next opportunity will be Wednesday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly where top diplomats of six signatories — the United Kingdom, France, China, Russia, Germany, Iran — and the European Union will discuss future of the 2015 deal.
