Here Are the Big Gaps Remaining in Iran Nuclear Talks


With less than three weeks before a Nov. 24 deadline to reach a deal preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, “big gaps” remain, in the words of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

There’s no agreement on fundamental questions, including the scope of the country’s uranium enrichment program, how and when to lift economic sanctions and how long Iran’s nuclear program must remain under international inspections and safeguards. Fourteen months after the talks between Iran and six world powers began, Kerry and other diplomats will meet for talks this weekend in Oman.
