Iran says good nuclear deal more important than deadline

DUBAI – 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, Iran’s foreign minister was quoted as saying on Monday.

“Reaching a good nuclear deal is more important than missing the deadline by a few days,” Mohammad Javad Zarif was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA. “There are still differences … some political and some technical.”

Zarif was speaking after arriving in Luxembourg for discussions with his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany, and EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
