The possibility of the U.S. and five other nations reaching a nuclear deal with Iran by this week’s deadline began to fade Sunday with reports that diplomats are now discussing an extension.
Secretary of State John Kerry and the other world leaders have started internal discussions on extending the talks — one day before the Monday deadline for a deal attempting to cap Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for lifting sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
Two diplomats said Sunday that formal extension discussions have not yet started with Iran. But the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany have started talks among themselves on approaches they could present to Tehran.
At the same time, formal talks with Iran on bridging the differences are continuing.
