Iran’s Zarif says nuclear talks can end within days of deadline

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Monday that talks with top international powers on Tehran’s contested nuclear programme could be completed by a June 30 deadline or slightly later.

“There is a political commitment on the part of everybody to move forward,” Zarif said on the sidelines of an EU foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg.

“There is the possibility that we can finish this by the deadline or a few days after the deadline,” he said.
