Iran, US Delegations Finish Talks Over Tehran’s Nuclear Program
Earlier in the day, the Iranian and US delegations wrapped up talks on Tehran's nuclear program in Geneva. Over the past two days, the delegations headed by top diplomats met three times and some gaps appear to have been narrowed.

Delegations from Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and Germany convened in Geneva Sunday to hold discussions on Tehran's nuclear program.

The UN Security Council and a number of countries have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons. Tehran has repeatedly rejected those claims, stating that its uranium enrichment program is for peaceful purposes only.

Iran and the P5+1 group have held several rounds of talks on Tehran's nuclear program in recent years with limited results. A long-term agreement has to be reached by July 2015.
