Talks toward a historic nuclear deal between Iran and major powers go into overtime Wednesday after stumbling over what one Western diplomat called "very, very, very tough" remaining issues.Iran and six world powers have effectively given themselves until Friday to reach a deal by extending the terms of a 2013 interim accord under which Tehran has frozen parts of its nuclear program in return for minor sanctions relief. The mooted deal would curb Iran's nuclear program for a decade or more in order to make any push to make nuclear weapons virtually impossible -- an intention Iran has always denied -- in return for progressively lifting sanctions.Despite progress on a series of complicated annexes, negotiations have stalled on how to ease sanctions against Iran, probing allegations that in the past Tehran did try to develop nuclear arms and ensuring Iran can continue to have a modest, peaceful nuclear program.
