Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif (L) meets with US Secretary of State John Kerry (R) during talks on Tehran's nuclear program, in Vienna, on July 13, 2014US Secretary of State John Kerry pressed his Iranian counterpart Monday to make "critical choices", six days before a deadline to cut a historic deal that would finally dispel fears about Tehran's nuclear drive.
