Foreign ministers from major powers were expected back in Vienna Sunday seeking to score a huge diplomatic success by nailing down a nuclear deal with Iran after almost two years of intense effort.Under the mooted accord, building on a framework deal from April, a complex web of sanctions suffocating the Iranian economy will be progressively lifted if Tehran massively scales down its nuclear program for at least a decade.This is aimed at extending the time needed by Iran to produce enough nuclear material for one bomb -- it denies any such aim -- to at least a year from several months at present. The deal between Iran and the P5+1 -- Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States -- would end a standoff dating back to 2002 when dissidents first revealed undeclared nuclear facilities in Iran.
