Iran nuclear program: Talks focused on deal, says Kerry

  • John Kerry, the US secretary of state, has said talks in Vienna will be focused on moving towards an agreement on Iran's nuclear program, and not on extending the deadline for a deal, according to media reports.  

    With the deadline to strike a deal looming, diplomats from world powers are readying for a tough round of negotiations during the six-party talks.

    Sergei Ryabkov, Russia’s chief negotiator, was quoted as saying that talks were being held in a “tense atmosphere.”
