Iran nuclear deal to be drafted in May

WASHINGTON — A U.S. official says world powers and Iran will start drafting a comprehensive nuclear agreement next month.
The official says the sides are making progress in talks.
The U.S. and its partners hope to remove the threat of Iran developing nuclear weapons. Tehran says its program is peaceful. It wants relief from U.S. and international sanctions.
The sides reached an interim deal last year providing Iran limited easing of sanctions for uranium and plutonium curbs.
The U.N. says Iran is honoring the agreement thus far. It expires in July and may be extended.
But the U.S. official said the goal is to seal a final pact without the extension.
Negotiators meet again next week in Vienna.
