ASTANA, Kazakhstan — The Obama administration is encouraged that Iran has agreed to return to Geneva for a new round of international talks on its disputed nuclear program, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday.

"We are encouraged that Iran has agreed to meet in Geneva next week," she told a news conference after attending the opening day of a summit meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which does not include Iran."This is an opportunity for Iran to come to the table and discuss the matters that are of concern to the international community — first and foremost, their nuclear program." She also said the talks could be more comprehensive but that the nuclear matter would be central.
