GENEVA (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that if no deal is reached with world powers on Saturday over Iran's nuclear program, talks could continue in a week to 10 days.

"There was a possibility, and perhaps it still exists, that if there are good intentions we can reach an agreed-upon text," Zarif told reporters in Geneva, where ministers from six major powers are negotiating with Iran.

"If we reach a result by the end of today, it's reached. If not, the process will continue in one week or 10 days."

The Nuclear talks in Geneva must be built on proven steps to halt its nuclear weapons ambition and not just promises. The US should not give Iran sanctions relief just because they say “Trust us.” Also, The US must include human rights issues as a condition of sanctions relief. This is the point where the US has maximum leverage over a regime wanting a deal badly. The US must not give something away without gaining something in return.
