Iran nuclear talks aimed at agreeing the outlines of a landmark deal with major powers by midnight are advancing, but “slowly,” an Iranian negotiator said late afternoon Tuesday.
“We are advancing but slowly. In view of the complexity of the issues and the fact that this is the final look at the issues, it is happening slowly,” said Behrouz Kamalvandi. “We have to show patience.”
Iran and the six world powers have been in talks to resolve outstanding issues surrounding Tehran’s nuclear program to pave the way for striking an overarching deal on the country’s nuclear program as a deadline slated for July 1 draws closer.
