This marked the first time in years that high-ranking officials from the two countries had engaged in talks. This move, along with letters exchanged between President Barack Obama and Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani,
may indicate a possible thawing in U.S.-Iranian relations.
Kerry's diplomatic efforts with Iran began to pay off in November 2013. The United States reached an agreement with Iran regarding its nuclear program. In this deal, Iran has pledged to curb its uranium enrichment program in exchange for an easing of sanctions against Iran. On the television program State of the Union, Kerry answered critics, such as Israel, of this accord. "We believe very strongly that because the Iranian nuclear program is actually set backwards and is actually locked into place in critical places, that that is better for Israel than if you were just continuing to go down the road and they rush towards a nuclear weapon," he said.
In 1995, Kerry married Teresa Heinz, who is the widow of former Senator John Heinz and heir to the Heinz fortune. Kerry has two daughters from a previous marriage, Alexandra and Vanessa. Teresa has three sons, John, Andre and Christopher. The couple lives in Boston.

(although, considering they are indeed politicians, they probably know that being seen gorging at a local eatery doesn't hurt in the PR factor). Explore our photographic homage on the art of political eating and realize that at least in this arena, all parties can come to an agreement that it does their image good.
