US 'In No Hurry' to Close Iran Deal, Says Official


An American official was quoted in Israeli media Thursday as saying that the talks on ameliorating the Iranian nuclear program now going on in Geneva could last longer than many expect. While the expectation among commentators has been that a deal would be quickly wrapped up, the official was quoted in the daily Ma'ariv newspaper as saying that the U.S. was “in no hurry” to wrap up a deal.

The West is attempting to convince Iran to, at the very least, agree to limit its enrichment of uranium, in exchange for a significant easing of the sanctions against the country.
