Iran and world powers seem to be on cusp of a nuclear deal, to be announced as soon as Monday, that would bring to an end the 12-year dispute that led to strict economic sanctions on the Persian Gulf nation.

Resolving one of the remaining obstacles to a deal, a political agreement was reached Sunday to lift a United Nations arms embargo, said a senior diplomat involved in the talks. The language of a new UN Security Council resolution is still being drafted.
