Iran nuclear talks: Negotiations reach 'final phase'

  • France’s foreign minister Laurent Fabius said that talks to secure a deal with Iran on its nuclear program were in their “final” phase, a sentiment echoed by other key players involved in the negotiations.

    Fabius is one of the negotiators at the talks in Vienna between Iran and the world powers.

    Javad Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, indicated that talks would not continue beyond Monday.

    Meanwhile, senior Republicans in the US have expressed doubts over President Obama’s ability to win Congress’s backing for a possible Iranian deal.
