    After arriving in Geneva Friday amid rising hopes for a deal on Iran's nuclear program, Secretary of State John Kerry emphasized that the parties still have significant ground to cover. "I don't think anybody should mistake that there are some important gaps to be closed," Kerry said, echoing the position of other world leaders. Even before Kerry's arrival, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the proposed agreement, which would temporarily freeze Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for loosened economic sanctions, would be the “deal of the century” for Iran, and a “grievous historic error.”
