Iran Nuclear Talks Start With Doubt Over Meeting Deadline

Iran and world powers may struggle to meet a self-imposed July deadline to agree on long-term limitations to the nation’s nuclear work in return for sanctions relief, according to former diplomats and analysts.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and European Union foreign-policy chief Catherine Ashton meet today in Vienna. Diplomats from China, France, Germany, Russia, the U.K. and the U.S., the so-called P5+1, convene meetings with their counterparts from Iran tomorrow for the first round of talks since reaching their Geneva accord in November.
