Hard to reach Iran nuclear deal by November 24: Blinken

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - It now appears difficult to reach a comprehensive nuclear deal with Iran by a Nov. 24 deadline but it is not impossible, U.S. Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken told lawmakers on Tuesday.

"Right now, I think it's going to be difficult to get to where we want to go. It's not impossible," Blinken, who is U.S. President Barack Obama's choice to be deputy secretary of state, said at his nomination hearing for the diplomatic post.
