Baku-APA. Iran and six world powers are working to finalize the terms of a likely extension in negotiations over Tehran's nuclear program beyond a July 20 deadline and an announcement may come as early as Friday, Western diplomats said, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Officials from both sides on Tuesday said it appeared the talks would not yield a breakthrough by the self-imposed target date after two weeks of efforts failed to bridge gaps in positions over a deal intended to end a decade-long dispute.

Several diplomats close to the negotiations in Vienna suggested they expected them to resume in September.

Western nations fear Iran's nuclear program may be aimed at developing a nuclear weapons capability. Tehran says it is for peaceful purposes.
