European Union and Iranian officials are expected to say Thursday that enough progress has been made to continue talks on Iran's nuclear program until June 30, Reuters reported. A joint statement is slated for Thursday afternoon.
A framework between six world powers and Iran, if finalized by the end of June, would aim to suspend more than two-thirds of Iran's nuclear enrichment capacity with monitoring for 10 years, Reuters reported, citing a source. Most of Iran's uranium stocks would be diluted or shipped abroad under the deal, Reuters added.
Iran and major world powers have been negotiating for more than a week in Lausanne, Switzerland, aiming to strike a deal that would form the basis for an accord on reining in Iran's nuclear program.
