Officials wait for a meeting with officials from P5+1, the European Union and Iran ahead of the opening of a plenary session on Iran nuclear talks in Lausanne on March 31, 2015The United States warned Tuesday that a midnight deadline to agree the outlines of a deal aimed at stopping Iran obtaining nuclear weapons may be missed, saying marathon talks in Switzerland may stretch into Wednesday. In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued his third broadside against the deal in as many days, saying it will "pave the way" to an Iranian nuclear bomb. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov returned to the negotiations in Switzerland, an Iranian negotiator said progress was being made, but "slowly". With an army of technical and sanctions experts having beavered away late into the night, the two sides are hoping to lay the groundwork for ending the 12-year-old crisis over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
