Russian official sees Iran nuclear deal being reached on time

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted on Monday as saying he was confident a deal could be reached between world powers and Iran on Tehran’s nuclear program by a June 30 deadline.

“I would like to quash any talk of a deadline extension. Reaching a deal by the date set, by June 30, is possible,” he was quoted as saying by TASS news agency, which had quoted a diplomatic source on Friday as saying a deadline extension might be needed.
