WASHINGTON - US Senate leaders said on Monday that they are nearing a deal to reopen the government and raise the US debt limit.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who began talks on Saturday, appeared together on the Senate floor to voice their optimism that such a deal could be finalized within days.

If the full Democratic-led Senate passes it, the proposal would then go to the Republican-led House.
