LAUSANNE, Switzerland - Western powers are hoping for concessions from Tehran that could help clinch a political agreement in nuclear talks this week after the United States and European powers voiced a willingness to compromise on suspending UN sanctions, officials said.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif were due to meet in Lausanne, Switzerland, later on Sunday to break the logjam ahead of a crucial round of talks between Iran and six major powers.

Kerry has urged Iran to take decisions now to enable them to clinch a political framework agreement for a nuclear deal with Tehran that would lift sanctions in exchange for curbs on Tehran's nuclear program ahead of an end-March deadline. The parties have set a June 30 deadline to finalize an accord.
