Talks between world powers and Iran over that country’s nuclear program are “a historic opportunity for all of us to end a rather prolonged chapter,” Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told CNN‘s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday in Vienna. A Sunday deadline is looming for negotiators to reach agreement on a comprehensive solution on Iran’s nuclear program; Iran, in return, is seeking broad sanctions relief and access to international markets. It now seems likely that Sunday’s deadline will not be met and may have to be extended. “I think we have made enough serious discussion for us to think about the feasibility of continuing these discussions,” Zarif said. “I think Secretary Kerry made that recommendation. I have made the recommendation.” “The point is whether it is possible to make a deal, we’re not talking about a bad deal or a good deal, but a doable deal. A lasting deal.”
