All sides making 'genuine effort' for Iran deal: US

US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday praised a “genuine effort” by all sides negotiating a nuclear accord with Iran to get the deal done as a new deadline looms. “We have some tough issues, but there’s been a genuine effort by everybody to be serious about this and to understand the time constraints that we’re working under,” Kerry said as he began a new round of talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. Many of the ministers from the global powers — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States — negotiating a deal to put a nuclear bomb out of Iran’s reach are due back in Vienna on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s new deadline for an accord.
