Iran Says Good Nuclear Deal More Important Than Deadline

Iran's foreign minister was quoted as saying on Monday, "It is worth missing the June 30 deadline in nuclear talks between Iran and world powers by a few days in order to get a good deal." Mohammad Javad Zarif's comments were the second indication on Monday that the talks may overrun, after a spokesman for Germany's foreign ministry said the deadline was tight. Zarif was speaking after arriving in Luxembourg for discussions with his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany, and EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. The talks have made progress but a number of issues are still unresolved.
