Iran, World Powers on Cusp of Nuclear Weapons Deal

Updated on

U.S. and Iranian diplomats dug in over the last obstacles to a historic nuclear deal and signaled they’d let slip their chance to seal an accord by their latest self-prescribed deadline.

Appearing on the third-floor terrace of the Palais Coburg in Vienna, where negotiations are in their 17th day, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif motioned with his head to indicate “no” after assembled journalists on the square below shouted whether an accord was possible by Monday’s deadline. An Iranian official who asked not to be named later confirmed negotiators expected to miss the July 13 date targeted for a deal.
