|President Barack Obama warned Iran on Tuesday that it must stick to the framework for a nuclear deal set forth earlier this year, and that if it decides it cannot abide by those terms, "that's going to be a problem."
Obama made the comments shortly after the United States, its partners and Iran announced they would extend talks on a comprehensive nuclear deal until July 7, a full week after Tuesday's original deadline. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appeared to raise doubts about a deal when he insisted a week ago that all sanctions on Iran must be lifted immediately once an accord is reached and balked at limits on Iran's nuclear research.
