Iran nuclear talks extended

John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif will meet again this morning to finalize plans of a comprehensive nuclear agreement that would slowly lift international sanctions in exchange for clear guarantees that Iran will not pursue nuclear weapons.

The talks between Iran and the six world powers were extended past Sunday in order to hammer out details by the end of the week.

Kerry warned earlier this month that if there is not enough progress in the talks by the July 20 deadline, the U.S. may not allow them to continue.

    Ground Hog Day all over again for the Obama team much to the World's detriment. Kerry should have let his wife do the negotiations-she is not a pompous windbag and I understand that everyone is actually terrified of her including her husband.

    Dont believe that it is correct to say that the talks have been extended. July 20th is the cut off date. Kerry and other finance ministers just arrived, so I'd anticipate that it would be Wednesday or Thursday at the earliest before we heard anything concrete.

    All it is is a delay in the announcement by team Obama that they have hosed up yet another international situation...making them about 0-30. Countdown to the Israel airstrikes starts in 3,2,1

    Well thank goodness for this, for a moment there I thought the Iranians had hoodwinked us into thinking they were all for talking some more.

    It's a very sorry day, when we let the appeasers and the liberal pacifists run our
    beautiful country and it's proud people into the ground. America is no longer respected and feared by our enemies, and that will only result in more American deaths from bad decisions made by Obama's minions. God help us all, if we forget our brave fallen comrades in Iraq, whose ultimate sacrifice has been tarnished by, once again, really bad decisions by the Obama Administration, allowing our enemies to occupy Iraq, and creating a vacuum that we can no longer fill.
    Why, oh why, did we lift sanctions that had Iran against the wall. What was the strategy; let our enemy up when they're down, just so they can hit us again?
    Maybe Iran isn't Obama's enemy, maybe "Israel" is. He's a socialist who believes in equality. All nations in the Middle East should have nuclear capacity to balance Israels, shouldn't they? After all, his middle name is Hussein!!!!
