Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday that Washington was not engaged in a race to complete talks with Iran on its nuclear program and vowed to defend America's regional allies against any threats. "This is not a race to complete just any agreement," Kerry said at a news conference with United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahayan in Abu Dhabi. "We will stand up for and defend our allies in this region against any kind of external threat, so this is a strong strategic relationship and I look forward to continuing our important dialogue ... and to strengthening the relationship," Kerry said.
