Marathon talks aimed at curtailing Iran’s nuclear programme stretched into the night Monday as negotiators grappled with the remaining “tricky issues” blocking a deal with a deadline just hours away.
“There still remain some difficult issues,” Kerry told a CNN reporter in his luxury lakeside hotel in the Swiss town of Lausanne.
“We are working very hard to work those through. We are working late into the night and obviously into tomorrow.”
Global powers are racing against the clock to nail down the final pieces of a framework deal aimed at stopping Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb by Tuesday’s midnight deadline.
Adding to the drama, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov left the crunch talks with Iran in Switzerland after a series of meetings, Russian media reported.
