HANOVER, N.H. - US Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton said on Friday she hoped that 18 months of nuclear talks between Iran and major powers would yield a deal to curb Iran's nuclear program.

"I so hope that we are able to get a deal in the next week that puts a lid on Iran's nuclear weapons program," the former secretary of state told a rally on the Dartmouth College campus in Hanover, New Hampshire, adding that even if a deal is reached, there will be more work to be done.

Iran is in talks with the United States and five other powers - Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia - on an agreement to curtail its nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for November 2016, has generally not commented publicly on the Iran talks since launching her White House bid in April.
