The United States suggested Friday that a deal to impose United Nations sanctions on Iran is near despite a disappointing round of talks among key world powers earlier this week. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack also indicated the United States does not have unlimited patience for what has already been drawn-out negotiations among the UN Security Council's permanent members and Germany over Teheran's rogue nuclear program. "The sense is that any differences ... over the text of the resolution are starting to narrow," McCormack said. "We remain hopeful that, in the near future we will be able to get a resolution that everybody can vote for - that we will be able to maintain unity on the Security Council."
