RIYADH - US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday said Washington was not seeking a "grand bargain" with Iran, in reference to wider political and security cooperation, and that a nuclear deal with Tehran would address security concerns of Gulf Arab countries.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, speaking alongside Kerry in Riyadh, said Kerry had given him assurances that Washington would not forget about other Iranian behavior in the region while it pursued a nuclear deal.
