Iran, world powers fight to save nuclear deal

Russia believes world powers can come to a deal on Iranian nuclear enrichment by the November 24 deadlineIran and world powers sought Tuesday to avoid a nuclear deal falling apart on November 24, with a top Russian official expressing optimism and urging key countries to “build bridges”. After 24 hours in which the chances of a deal seemed to nosedive after senior officials from the United States and Iran failed to make progress, the other parties to the nuclear talks met in Oman.
