Iran nuclear talks stalled Friday, casting a shadow on earlier advances and denting hopes that Tehran and six world powers would meet a July 20 target date for a deal meant to curb Iran's atomic program while ending sanctions on the Islamic Republic.Deputy Iranian Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi acknowledged the meeting made "no progress" in its ambitious goal of starting to draft an agreement meant to ease a decade of Western distrust about Tehran's nuclear agenda in exchange for sanctions relief. While diplomats had spoken of some progress before the round that ended Friday, they had also warned of difficult talks ahead on some issues, such as Iran's enrichment program.That's about five times as many as the centrifuges Iran now has standing but idle, 10 times that of the machines actually enriching – and much more than the few thousand that diplomats say the U.S. and its allies are prepared to allow.
