White House: Iran work for nuclear deal likely finished in coming weeks

HONOLULU - The White House expects that Iran will finish the work it needs to trigger implementation of a landmark nuclear deal with world powers in the next couple weeks, White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said on Saturday.
Rhodes, speaking to reporters in Hawaii, said the United States needed more time to prepare sanctions related to Iran's ballistic missile program and said that delay was not a result of pressure from Tehran.
President Barack Obama is on vacation in Hawaii.
