Hague: 'Real momentum' in Iran nuclear talks

William Hague has said there is "real momentum" in talks to resolve the long running crisis over Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Speaking in Geneva as discussions enter a third day, the Foreign Secretary said it is "time to seize the moment" after ten years of dead-locked negotiations.

But he cautioned that "in order to reach a deal every detail of Iran's nuclear programme will have to be pain-staking examined".

Mr Hague also warned it was still possible that although progress has been made there may be no final deal by the end of the day.
