The Washington Post: Kerry: Iran nuclear talks aim for an agreement, not an extension of deadline

Secretary of State John F. Kerry arrived in Vienna on Thursday for what he hopes will be the culmination of laborious negotiations aimed at curbing Iran’s ability to build a nuclear weapon and easing debilitating sanctions on the country’s economy.

On a stop in Paris en route to Vienna, Kerry said negotiators are focused on finalizing a deal by the time an interim agreement dies at midnight Monday — although it is expected that the talks could continue until dawn Tuesday.

“We are not talking about an extension,” Kerry said. “We are talking about getting an agreement.”
