Russia's negotiator said Friday there has been a "very worrying" slowdown in progress in nuclear talks between Iran and six major powers ahead of a June 30 deadline to finalize a historic accord.In April, Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany agreed to the outlines of a deal aimed at ending the decade-old standoff over Iran's nuclear program.According to this framework, due to be finalized by June 30, Iran will dramatically scale down its nuclear activities in order to render any dash to making nuclear weapons all but impossible. Seen as something of a hawk in the talks, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Thursday that the issue of tighter U.N. inspections of Iran's remaining facilities after the mooted deal was not yet sewn up.Under the hoped-for deal the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, would keep even closer tabs on Iran.
