Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says he hopes Tehran and world powers can agree this week on a "road map" toward resolving the crisis over Iran's disputed nuclear program.

In a Facebook message on October 13, Zarif warned that the process would be complex and might require a "ministerial meeting."
The negotiations over Iran's nuclear program are due to start in Geneva on October 15, the first such talks since President Hassan Rohani took office in August.
The Geneva talks will be between Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi and European Union foreign-policy chief Catherine Ashton, along with representatives of the P5+1 group made up of the United States, Britain, China, France, and Russia, plus Germany.
World powers suspect Iran is seeking to make a nuclear bomb. Tehran denies the claim.
