Topic: European negotiator says framework accord with Iran unlikely soon


By John Irish and Lesley Wroughton LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) - Six world powers are unlikely to reach a framework agreement with Iran on its nuclear work in the coming days as the sides are still far apart on key issues, a senior European negotiator said on Thursday, blaming Tehran for failing to compromise. "We are not close to an agreement." Iran and six world powers are seeking a comprehensive agreement to curb Iran's most sensitive nuclear activities for at least 10 years in exchange for a gradual end to sanctions. A senior U.S. State Department official on Thursday denied reports there was a draft nuclear deal in circulation among six world powers and Iran.
