NEW YORK (AP) -- Iran's foreign minister says his country and key world powers have agreed to try to fast-track negotiations over Iran's disputed nuclear program to within a year.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif spoke at the Asia Society shortly after meeting foreign ministers from the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

"We agreed to jump-start the process so that we could move forward with a view to agreeing first on the parameters of the end game ... and move toward finalizing it hopefully within a year's time." Zarif said.

He added: "I thought I was too ambitious, bordering naivete. But I saw that some of my colleagues were even more ambitious and wanted to do it faster."
