"Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that international talks with Iran had "opened the door" to potential progress on clarifying the country's nuclear ambitions.
Speaking to reporters shortly after the talks ended in Switzerland, Clinton struck a cautious tone and said it remained to be seen whether the Iranians would act decisively to address concerns about their intentions.
"There were a number of issues raised, put on the table, and now we have to wait and see how quickly -- and whether -- Iran responds," she said. She did not specify the issues or speak in detail about how Iran should respond.
Clinton said she got a rundown on the substance of the talks in a telephone call from William Burns, who represented the Obama administration. The other countries involved were Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.
"It was a productive day, but the proof of that has not yet come to fruition, so we'll wait and continue to press our point of view and see what Iran decides to do," Clinton said.
Asked whether the U.S. strategy of offering more direct dialogue with Iran was paying off, she said more than gestures and discussions are required."
