Obama Hints Iran Nuclear Talks May be Extended

July 16, 2014 | 9:37 PM EDT

President Obama said Wednesday he would determine in the coming days
whether to extend the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program beyond
Sunday’s deadline, but also hinted that he would do so, saying “it’s
clear to me that we have made real progress in several areas and that we
have a credible way forward.” Late last year the administration had
suggested that if a comprehensive final agreement was not reached by the
July 20 deadline, it would support new sanctions against Tehran.
