Reporters covering Iran nuclear talks in Vienna say a final deal looks imminent. The breakthrough came during Thursday’s visit by the IAEA chief Yukiya Amano to Tehran and his meeting with President Hassan Rouhani to resolve the possible military dimensions (PMD) issue. Amano told reporters after his return to Vienna that with Iran’s cooperation, his agency could issue a report on PMD by the year’s end, one of the parameters required by P5+1 for sanctions relief.
The foreign ministers from China, France, Germany, Russia and the U.K. will be returning to Vienna Sunday afternoon to join Kerry and Zarif in an attempt to finalize an agreement by Tuesday’s deadline. Two Western officials told Bloomberg that the impending agreement could be announced as early as Monday.
