Topic: France sees big hurdles in search for Iran nuclear deal in Geneva

By Lesley Wroughton, Fredrik Dahl and Yeganeh Torbati GENEVA (Reuters) - France warned of serious stumbling blocks to a long-sought deal over Iran's nuclear program as foreign ministers from the Islamic state and six world powers extended negotiations into a third day on Saturday to end a decade-old standoff. As the talks stretched on, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said there was no certainty they would succeed in nailing down an interim deal that would begin to defuse fears of a covert Iranian advance towards nuclear arms capability. "As I speak to you, I cannot say there is any certainty that we can conclude," Fabius said on France Inter radio, stressing that France could not accept a "sucker's deal". British Foreign Secretary William Hague said the talks have achieved "very good progress" but important issues remained unresolved and he did not know whether a deal could be clinched by the end of the day.
