Iran and the major powers taking part in long-running talks over the Iranian nuclear program and the international sactions against the country are set to make a statement on the outcome of the negotiations "in a few hours," Reuters reported early Tuesday, Vienna time. The report didn't say whether a final deal had been reached, but a separate Associated Press account said an Iran nuclear agreement "appeared likely within hours," according to unidentified diplomats.
