Who said there's no room for laughter at Iran's nuclear talks? Negotiators got the giggles today over Iran's nuclear deadline.

Participants in the negotiations on Iran's disputed nuclear program burst into laughter, when asked whether a comprehensive agreement will be reached as early as Monday, Maria Zakharova, deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Information Department, wrote in her Facebook.

Лозанна. День второй. Министерское заседание "шестерка"+Иран. На вопрос журналистки, получится ли сегодня достичь договоренность, все министры дружно рассмеялись.

Posted by Maria Zakharova on Monday, March 30, 2015

"Lausanne, Day Two. A ministerial meeting of the P5+1 group and Iran. Asked by a journalist, if an agreement could be reached today, the ministers laughed in unison".

Taking part in the Monday gathering were French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, as well as his German, Russian and British colleagues Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Sergey Lavrov and Philip Hammond, respectively.

Also participating were US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi.

Earlier, Kerry questioned the possibility of signing a full-fledged agreement on Tehran's nuclear program at the moment.
