VIENNA -- Reports that a nuclear deal with Iran will be imminently announced are "speculative," a senior State Department official said on Sunday, shooting down a host of media reports suggesting otherwise.

"We have never speculated about the timing of anything during these negotiations, and we're certainly not going to start now," the official said, "especially given the fact that major issues remain to be resolved in these talks."

Among other outlets, The Associated Press and Reuters have quoted officials as saying that an historic nuclear agreement could come down as early as Sunday night.
