New Extension Possible

The Iran nuclear talks could run past a July 7 deadline if the negotiators are on the verge of an agreement, a senior US official said on Friday on condition of anonymity, Reuters reported.  Asked if Iran and the major powers were “exceedingly close” to a deal whether the talks might go past that deadline, the senior US official told reporters, “Is it conceivable that we would go past the 7th? Sure, it’s conceivable ... But ... we want to get this done as soon as possible.”  Iran and the P5+1 (the US, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany) had set a June 30 deadline to work out a long-term settlement to the 12-year dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program, but they gave themselves one more week to finalize the deal after failing to meet the target date.
