Washington (AFP) - Top diplomat John Kerry remains focused on nailing down a nuclear deal with Iran and plans to join the final negotiations in late June despite breaking his leg in a cycling accident, US officials said.
The globe-trotting Kerry arrived back in Boston from Geneva on a military C-17 plane accompanied by his personal doctor late Monday and was heading "directly to Massachusetts General Hospital for further treatment," his spokesman John Kirby said.
His fall on Sunday in the French Alps comes as America juggles multiple foreign policy challenges, but was unlikely to derail the Iran talks, observers said.
Already Kerry is planning to "remotely" join a conference on combating militants from the Islamic State (IS) group which he had been scheduled to attend on Tuesday in Paris.
But all eyes are on the looming June deadline to reach a deal curtailing Iran’s suspect nuclear program and end a 12-year standoff with the Islamic republic.
