Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Friday the process of drafting the text of a comprehensive deal on Tehran’s nuclear program is making slow progress, ISNA reported.  The senior nuclear negotiator, who was talking about the latest round of talks with the major powers in Vienna ending on Friday, said, “Due to the wide range of issues under discussion and their complexity, the progress in writing the text is very slow.”  He added that the talks with the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) will resume in the Austrian capital on Tuesday.  Iran and the major powers are set to finalize a nuclear accord by the end of June.
