Top US and Iranian diplomats try to hammer out a nuclear deal as the deadline loomsTough negotiations to end a decade-long standoff over Iran's suspect nuclear programme move into top gear Saturday, seeking to overcome stubborn hurdles as both sides urged painful compromises. US officials said Secretary of State John Kerry will meet his French and German counterparts on Saturday. After first meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Kerry will hold separate talks with France's top diplomat Laurent Fabius and then "have a working lunch" with him and German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier, a State Department official said. Global powers are chasing a deal to rein in Iran's nuclear ambitions which have poisoned international relations for 12 years and seal 18 months of closed-door, painstaking talks which have cris-crossed the globe and involved hundreds of experts.
