Iran nuclear deal: Pace of negotiations ramp up as clock ticks toward deadline 31.3.2015 DNA: Top News
With a deadline hours away, Iran and six world powers ramped up the pace on Tuesday in negotiations over a preliminary deal on Tehran's nuclear programme, while officials cautioned that any agreement would likely be fragile and incomplete. For nearly a week, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have been trying to break an impasse in the talks, which are aimed at stopping Iran from gaining the capacity to develop a nuclear bomb in exchange for easing international sanctions that are crippling its economy. But disagreements on enrichment research and the pace of lifting sanctions threatened to scupper a deal that could end a 12-year standoff between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear ambitions and reduce the risk of another Middle East war. "The two sticking points are the duration and the lifting of sanctions," an Iranian official said. "The two sides are arguing about the content of the text. Generally progress has been made." Officials played down expectations for the ...

'High chances' on deadline day for Iran nuclear talks 31.3.2015 DNA: Mumbai
Marathon talks aimed at stopping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons went into a final nail-biting day today, with Russia saying the chances were "high" of reaching a historic framework deal by midnight. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was rushing back to the Swiss city of Lausanne to "take part in the final part of the ministerial meeting of the six powers." "Chances are high," Lavrov told a press conference in Moscow. "The prospects of this round of talks are not bad, even good I would say," he added. An army of technical and sanctions experts had worked into the early hours today, exchanging documents to form the basis of an accord. The two sides hope to seal a political framework aimed at ending a nuclear standoff that has been threatening to escalate dangerously for 12 years. They would have until June 30 to flesh it out with annexes. US Secretary of State John Kerry, in Lausanne since Wednesday in the latest in a series of meetings around the world with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad ...

Iran and six World powers entrenched as clock ticks to nuclear deadline 31.3.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
Iran and major powers were struggling on Monday to reach a preliminary nuclear accord as "gloom" set in, with both sides sticking to their positions a day before a self-imposed deadline.  For days Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have been trying to break an impasse in negotiations aimed at ensuring that Tehran cannot develop a nuclear bomb, in exchange for an easing of United Nations sanctions that are crippling its economy.  But officials at the talks in the Swiss city of Lausanne said attempts to reach a framework accord, intended as a prelude to a comprehensive agreement by the end of June, could yet fall apart, and that they were at any rate likely to run until the deadline of midnight (2200 GMT) on Tuesday or beyond. "There still remain some difficult issues," U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNN. "We are working into the night and obviously into tomorrow ... Everyone knows the meaning of tomorrow." Kerry's spokeswoman Marie Harf said there was a 50/50 ...

At last a nuclear deal with Iran is sight. The chance must not be spurned | Simon Tisdall 30.3.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
All sides have strategic, security and moral reasons to bring Iran in from the cold. The ostracism of this talented, historically pro-western nation has lasted too long It’s hard to see why a nuclear deal with Iran will not be agreed this week. Each of the state representatives taking part in the final round of negotiations in Lausanne has powerful reasons for wanting a successful outcome, while the reputations of key individuals would be enhanced by an agreement. Such pragmatic considerations aside, a deal is positively desirable for strategic, security, and moral reasons. Given a string of past failures stretching back to 2002, when Iran’s covert nuclear programme was first publicly revealed, a continuing impasse after tomorrow night’s deadline may look a safer bet. Diplomats are warning that significant differences remain , particularly over the lifting of UN sanctions and Tehran’s wish to continue nuclear research and ...
