Iran Says Talks with World Powers Will be Extended

Iran's foreign minister suggested on Tuesday that six world powers are leaning towards extending nuclear talks with Tehran beyond a July 20 deadline, Reuters reported.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said "serious differences" remained in nuclear talks with the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. He added, however, that the text of a draft accord on curbing Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions had been improved significantly recently.
