Obama, Kerry discuss 'path forward' on Iran talks
Jul. 16, 2014
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are meeting Wednesday to discuss the "path forward" on Iranian nuclear talks. White House spokesman Josh Earnest says Iran's track record in implementing an interim agreement has been "surprisingly favorable." But he says there are still gaps between Iran and the U.S. and its negotiating partners as they work toward a final accord by a July 20 deadline. Diplomats told The Associated Press that Iran and the world powers have tentatively decided to extend the talks beyond that deadline. Earnest would not confirm that decision nor did he outline the possible options Obama and Kerry are discussing.
