Negotiations over Iran’s nuclear programme are entering their final phase, with just 48 hours until a deadline for Tehran and six world powers to reach a deal.

With the June 30 deadline looming, US Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Vienna today, their third encounter since yesterday.

Other foreign ministers are expected to join in the talks.

The goal of the talks involving Iran and the US, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia is a deal that would limit Tehran’s capacity to make nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief.

Diplomats said yesterday that Iran was considering a US-backed plan for it to send enriched uranium to another country for sale as reactor fuel, a step that would resolve one of several outstanding issues.
