BERLIN, Jan 20 (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday that talks over Iran‘s nuclear program have reached an “urgent” point and warned it would be necessary to take a different course with Tehran if no progress is made.

“There is real urgency and it’s really now a matter of weeks, where we determine whether or not we can return to mutual compliance with the agreement,” Blinken told a joint news conference with his German counterpart, referring to a 2015 nuclear deal.
