Obama: 'Significant gaps' remain in Iran nuclear talks

US President Barack Obama warns that “Significant gaps” remain with Iran over its disputed nuclear program, as a deadline for a deal looms large. Iran and world powers, including Washington, engaged Sunday in a diplomatic blitz less than 36 hours before the cutoff time for an agreement, with officials on both sides insisting they were still pulling out all the stops in the Vienna talks. Speaking to ABC News in comments broadcast Sunday, Obama said an interim deal with Tehran had been a success. The so-called P5+1 — permanent UN Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, plus Germany — have been locked in talks with Iran since February to turn the interim Geneva accord into a lasting agreement.
