Slim chances of Iranian nuclear deal by deadline 29.10.2014 Asian Age: International

A deal on Iran’s contested nuclear programme before a November 24 deadline is highly unlikely, a Western diplomat close to negotiations said on Monday.

“There are four-and-a-half weeks left to conclude a definitive pact. We are hoping for that but the chances are very slim,” the diplomat said.

“The ball is in Iran’s court” and Tehran would have to make “significant gestures”, the diplomat added.

The six powers in the talks with Iran Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States plus Germany, known as the P5+1 have set November 24 as the deadline for a comprehensive deal on the issue.

The aim is to close avenues towards Tehran ever developing an atomic bomb by cutting back its enrichment programme, shutting down suspect facilities and imposing tough international inspections.

In return, the global community would suspend and then gradually lift crippling economic sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic.
