NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will attend a meeting of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany this week, a U.S. official said on Monday.

"Yes, he will," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, when asked if Kerry would take part in the meeting.

The meeting was announced on Monday by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

The talks, aimed at addressing Western suspicions that Iran may be seeking to develop nuclear weapons, are to include Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany.
