A senior U.S. official expressed concern on Friday about a current lack of progress in negotiations between six world powers and Iran over Tehran's disputed nuclear program, speaking on the expected last day of a May 13-16 meeting. Iran still has some hard decisions to make. We're concerned that progress is not being made and that time is short." This week's talks are the fourth round of negotiations between Iran and the powers - the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia - with the goal of a long-term deal by a self-imposed July 20 deadline. The powers want Iran to scale back uranium enrichment and other sensitive nuclear work to deny it any capability to quickly produce atomic bombs.
