Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday his country would "do its best" to secure a nuclear deal as Tehran and Washington held crunch talks on the long-running dispute.The meeting is part of a fresh diplomatic drive in the face of a looming July 20 deadline for a final deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers.The U.S.-Iran meeting began Monday with a five-hour session, the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution that American and Iranian negotiators have held direct, official nuclear talks.Iran – which says its nuclear program is peaceful and mainly aimed at generating electricity – has around 19,000 centrifuges, of which roughly 10,000 are operating, according to the U.N. nuclear agency.
