US Secretary of State John Kerry underwent a successful surgery to have a fracture in his right leg repaired at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts on June 2, 2015, informed State Department spokesman John Kirby.

Kerry broke his right femur on May 31, 2015, in a bicycling accident when he joined a portion of the Tour de France route in France. He had to return to Boston on June 1, 2015, for the surgery and cancel visits to Madrid in Spain and Paris in France. The accident raised suspicions that Kerry's injury might delay the Iran nuclear negotiations ahead of an end-of-June deadline.


Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said, "Because he believes he's got a lot on his plate, and he does, and it's too early to say what impact his injury will have on the broader negotiations. The thing that I'm confident is true and will continue to be true is that he will play a leading role in our efforts to try to complete these negotiations by the end of June."
