Iran and world powers met in Muscat Tuesday amid growing signs that a long-bargained deal on Tehran's nuclear program will not be struck by a November 24 deadline.The one-day meeting comes after lengthy discussions between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif broke off in the Gulf sultanate late Monday with no signs of progress.As the talks in Oman got under way, Iran signalled its intent to pursue bigger atomic plans, announcing a deal that will see Russia build two new nuclear reactors at the Bushehr plant in southern Iran, taking its total number of reactors to eight.The P5+1 wants Iran to reduce the scope of its nuclear activities -- in exchange for an easing of punitive economic sanctions imposed since 2012 which have hobbled Iran's economy.Iran has said five years but world powers have suggested at least double that.
