LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani agreed in a phone call on Thursday that it was possible to conclude a framework Iran nuclear deal by the end of this month, Cameron's spokeswoman said.

"Both leaders reaffirmed their commitment to securing a deal," the spokeswoman told reporters. "There was a clear sign from both of them that they saw the opportunity presented by the ongoing discussions in Switzerland and the possibility of securing a political framework by the end of the month."
