World to ease Iran sanctions in event of nuclear deal

LONDON - World powers would lift some of the sanctions they have imposed on Iran if a preliminary deal over its nuclear programme could be reached, Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday after the latest round of talks ended without agreement.
"An interim agreement would involve offering Iran limited, proportionate sanctions relief," Hague told the British parliament, reiterating that a "deal is on the table ... and can be reached".
Britain wanted an interim agreement with Iran as a first step towards a full deal on Tehran's disputed nuclear program, he added, in an update to lawmakers. Despite reports to the contrary, he said world powers had a united stance in talks with Iran at the weekend and that no one country had vetoed a deal.
