​Iran, Six Powers End Round Of Talks In Vienna

Iran and six world powers have concluded their fifth round of nuclear talks in Vienna amid signs of progress.

EU spokesman Michael Mann told reporters in the Austrian capital on June 20 that Iran and the six world powers will meet again in Vienna on July 2 and have begun the process of drafting a final agreement to end the crisis over Tehran's nuclear program.

He said the two sides worked "extremely hard" during this week's session from June 16 to 20 and "presented each other with a number of ideas on a range of issues."

But Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said they have yet to find common ground on the main issues.

The two sides are striving to reach a comprehensive deal by July 20.
