ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION The United States remains hopeful that an agreement can be reached between western powers and Iran over Tehran's nuclear program during talks in Geneva, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Friday. "The fact is we're not reading out hour by hour or day by day the meetings in Geneva, but we believe that the first round provided progress that indicated that it is at least possible to reach an agreement in this first phase, and an agreement that allows for a verifiable decision by Iran to halt any progress on its nuclear program and to roll back key aspects of it, as we've discussed," Carney said. "And on that. On the parameters of that agreement, we have all in the P5+1 been in consensus and continue to be," Carney added.
