Iran nuclear talks to resume in early September - state TV

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran said on Wednesday nuclear talks with six world powers would resume in early September, according to state television, after both sides agreed to continue talking for four more months to try to reach a final agreement on Tehran's nuclear programme. The preliminary accord had been due to expire on Sunday but was extended with some adjustments, after the two sides failed during negotiations in Vienna to meet a self-imposed July 20 deadline for a long-term deal to end the decade-old nuclear standoff #United States #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #Latin America

Arab rifts may complicate search for Gaza truce

DOHA/CAIRO (Reuters) - The push for a Gaza ceasefire risks becoming mired in a regional tussle for influence between conservative Arab states and Islamist-friendly governments, with rival powers competing to take credit for a truce, analysts and some officials say. The main protagonists are Arab heavyweight Egypt and the tiny Gulf state of Qatar, on opposite sides of a regional standoff over Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, and its ideological patron the Muslim Brotherhood #United States #India #Business #Egypt #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Qatar #Latin America #Muslim
