Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif
(Worthy News)-- U.S. and Iranian negotiators in Vienna on Tuesday agreed to extend a deadline for an agreement on Iran's disputed nuclear program until July 7, as sticking points remained, the USA Today reported.
The deadline was originally set to expire Tuesday night. The preliminary measures have been prolonged to July 7 "to allow more time for negotiations to reach a long-term solution ... on the Iran nuclear issue," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, according to the Associated Press.
Earlier Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who returned from consultations in Tehran. Kerry had few words about the meeting, saying only "We had a good conversation," the Associated Press reported. --Source
