White House: Unlikely for Iran talks to drag on for 'many more weeks'

July 9, 2015 21:08

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will bring the US negotiating team back from Vienna if talks over Iran's nuclear program, which have already been extended several times beyond successive self-imposed deadlines, do not appear to be constructive, a White House spokesman said on Thursday.

"The fact that we've been very clear about our expectations for a final agreement makes it unlikely that the talks will drag on for many more weeks. But, again, I wouldn't speculate on the outcome," said spokesman Josh Earnest.
