Foreign ministers from major powers were set Thursday to turn the screws on Iran to finalize a historic nuclear deal on the eve of a deadline to present it to U.S. lawmakers.A deal with the P5+1 group -- the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany -- could pave the way to normalized relations between Iran and the West after 35 years of mistrust and enmity.If Congress does not get the deal in time, the review period doubles to 60 days, giving opponents more time to reject it. During this time U.S. President Barack Obama cannot waive Congressional sanctions, the most painful ones for Iran. Back in Iran, Iranians are anxiously following the news out of Vienna, hoping for a deal that will end the sanctions that have crippled the country's economy.
