Iran's lead negotiator in nuclear talks with world powers said both sides were inching closer on some issues as they sought Wednesday to intensify discussions on reaching a definitive agreement before a July deadline.In November the two sides reached an interim deal under which Iran froze certain parts of its nuclear activities in return for minor relief from painful Western sanctions.But Iran has not permanently dismantled any of its nuclear equipment and can fully reactivate its facilities if it wishes when the deal expires on July 20 .Moscow and Iran are said to be negotiating an oil-for-goods barter deal that would undermine Washington's sanctions efforts, a strategy the US credits with getting Tehran to talks in the first place.
