Newscast Media VIENNA—U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says nuclear talks with Iran have made good progress but there is "still work to do" to meet a July 20 deadline. Speaking after talks in Vienna between six world powers and Iranian officials, Kerry said there have been "tough negotiations" and that "very real gaps" remain in the positions of the two sides.

He said he still believes there is a path forward and that both sides are working in good faith.

Kerry said he is returning to Washington to consult with President Barack Obama and Congress about the prospects for a long-term deal with Iran.

Kerry said he has told Iranian officials that the 19,000 nuclear centrifuges the country possesses are too many.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a speech last week that Iran needs tens of thousands more centrifuges.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a separate news conference on July 15, said that although he still hopes a deal would be possible by the July 20 deadline, he believed enough progress has been made to justify an extension.
