Iran says : Nuke deadline impossible

The United States might extend a deadline to reach a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, a senior State Department official told CNN.

International negotiators in Vienna, Austria, are scrambling to reach a deal by Monday’s deadline.

“It is only natural that less than 48 hours from the deadline we are discussing a range of options,” the official said. “An extension is one of those options.”

Both sides appeared to be pointing to the possibility of yet another extension to the monthslong series of negotiations, whose final outcome is expected to have a lasting effect on Iran’s relations with the West.

U.S. President Barack Obama, asked about the deadline in an interview broadcast Sunday morning on ABC’s “This Week,” didn’t reject the idea.
