VIENNA - Iran and six major powers have so far not discussed extending negotiations on a nuclear agreement despite the fact that their deadline is a week away, a senior US official said on Monday.

Senior foreign officials from Iran and the six powers - the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China - gather in Vienna this week for the last round of negotiations before a Nov. 24 deadline to reach an accord that would end sanctions in exchange for curbs on Tehran's atomic program.

"We have continued to make some progress in the course of these negotiations but we still have gaps to close and we do not yet know if we will be able to do so," the official told reporters on condition of anonymity.

"Extension (of the negotiations) is not and has not been a subject of negotiations at this point."

Despite nearly a year of talks, Iranian and Western officials have said the deadline is unlikely to be met, and an extension is the most likely scenario.
