Iran nu­clear deal elu­sive

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

Ne­go­tia­tors at the Iran nu­clear talks pushed past their sec­ond dead­line in a week on Tues­day, rais­ing new ques­tions about the abil­ity of world pow­ers to cut off all Ira­nian path­ways to a bomb through diplo­macy. The dis­cus­sions, al­ready in their 12th day, were pro­longed un­til pos­si­bly Fri­day. “We knew it would have been dif­fi­cult, chal­leng­ing and some­times hard,” said Fed­er­ica Mogherini, the Euro­pean Union’s for­eign pol­icy chief. She said the ne­go­ti­a­tions would con­tinue de­spite hit­ting some “tense” mo­ments, and the U.S. State Depart­ment de­clared the cur­rent in­terim nu­clear ar­range­ment with Iran ex­tended through July 10.
