Iran nuclear talks ‘could go either way’


VIENNA: Top ministers were due to meet on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) seeking to conclude an unprecedented nuclear deal with Iran, on the eve of a deadline aiming to draw the curtain on almost two years of high-stakes negotiations. After criss-crossing the world since September 2013 chasing a complex accord to cut off Iran’s pathways to developing nuclear arms, exhausted world powers warned Tehran now was the time to strike an accord or walk away. US Secretary of State John Kerry, who met four times on Sunday (Monday in Manila) with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad, acknowledged that at the eleventh hour the talks still “could go either way.” “All the cards are on the table,” added French Foreign minister Laurent Fabius, as he arrived back in Vienna for the final stretch with Tuesday’s deadline looming.
