Confirmed: Iran Talks to Be Extended by 7 Months

Talks between Iran and Western powers regarding a comprehensive nuclear deal have been extended by seven months, a diplomat told the Associated Press on Monday – just as the original November 24 deadline approached.


According to the diplomat, who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity, the deal must be settled by March 1. A fully-fleshed out and detailed agreement must then be drafted four months later, on July 1.


Iran and six world powers are still holding talks in Vienna to hammer out the final details of the extension agreement, which followed previous reports on Sunday which indicated US Secretary of State John Kerry had offered Iran an extension.


Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday negotiators were still having “consultations” on a final agreement, including the US’s demands for heavy restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program as well as Iran’s push against economic sanctions, according to Fox News.
