Iran Nuclear Deal Announcement Expected for Monday

"I think we're getting to some real decisions. So I will say, because we have a few tough things to do, I remain hopeful. Hopeful."

An announcement on a deal which has been reached between Western nations and Iran over the future of the Iranian nuclear program is expected to be made on Monday afternoon, AP has reported.

A tentative deal may even be reached by tonight.

The last few weeks have seen a great deal of movement on the Iranian nuclear talks. The Iranians made last minute demands, with their leaders insisting on an end to all sanctions before allowing any nuclear inspectors into their country. There were also reports that the negotiations had broken down all together.

The American Secretary of State John Kerry even threatened to walk away from the table just the other day.

And Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, of course, has continued to say that the deal with Iran is a bad one; even though, he does not know all of the details.

An Iranian source told AP, “We are working hard, but a deal tonight is simply logistically impossible.”

Secretary of State Kerry, said that “a few tough things” remain in the way of a deal but also, “I think we’re getting to some real decisions. So I will say, because we have a few tough things to do, I remain hopeful. Hopeful.”

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters, “I hope that we are finally entering the last phase of this negotiation.”

No details of a deal have been revealed, but whatever they may be the Republicans who control the U.S. Congress will be likely to criticize it and threaten to oppose it.
