Topic: Iran, powers push for nuclear deal as clock ticks toward deadline


With a deadline hours away, Iran and six world powers ramped up the pace on Tuesday in negotiations over a preliminary deal on Tehran's nuclear program, while officials cautioned that any agreement would likely be fragile and incomplete. For nearly a week, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have been trying to break an impasse in the talks, which are aimed at stopping Iran from gaining the capacity to develop a nuclear bomb in exchange for easing international sanctions that are crippling its economy. "The two sticking points are the duration and the lifting of sanctions," an Iranian official said. Officials said they hoped to be able to announce something, though one Western diplomat said it would be "incomplete and kick some issues down the road".
