An extension of Sunday's deadline to strike a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers is now "highly probable," and by months not weeks, a Western diplomat said Tuesday.

"As it's highly improbable that we will finalise in Vienna before the weekend, it is highly probable that there will be a wish to continue to negotiate in the coming months," the diplomat said on condition of anonymity on the sidelines of talks in Vienna.
