EU: No breakthrough deal expected at Iran talks in Almaty

ALMATY- World powers do not expect a breakthrough agreement at nuclear talks with Iran in the Kazakh city of Almaty, a spokesman for the European Union's foreign policy chief said on Tuesday.
"It is clear that nobody expects to come from Almaty with a fully-done deal," Michael Mann told a news conference shortly after negotiations started. Talks are expected to run through Wednesday.
