Iran Nuclear Deal Deadline Looms Ahead Of Latest Talks

PRESIDENT OBAMA VIA THE WHITE HOUSE: "For the first time in nearly a decade, we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program."
It’s been almost a full year since the president made that announcement, as Iran and six leading countries cemented a deal that would freeze the country's nuclear program in exchange for some sanction relief.
That deal was meant as a stepping stone for a more comprehensive nuclear agreement. But after multiple rounds of talks and one deadline extension, that agreement still looks as elusive as ever — and time is running out.
