Britain says ‘no breakthrough’ in Iran talks

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond tells reporters in Vienna that Iran and the world powers have not yet achieved a breakthrough in nuclear talks.

“The work goes on. You are going to see ministers coming and going to maintain the momentum of these discussions. I don’t think we’re at any kind of breakthrough moment yet and we will do whatever we need to do to keep the momentum,” Hammond says, according to Reuters.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is currently meeting with Hammond along with other partners from the P5+1, before direct talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif this evening.

The June 30 deadline has been extended until at least July 7.
