TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- A senior Iranian nuclear negotiator has urged world powers to find a "common position" to achieve a "balanced" final nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic as a deadline for negotiations looms.

A report Monday by Iran's state-run Press TV satellite news channel quoted Abbas Araghchi making the comment about talks between Iran and the six-nation group including the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.

The U.S. and Iran broke off nuclear negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Friday for consultations but they are to resume the make-or-break talks Wednesday.

The talks seek a permanent deal to cap Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the easing of economic sanctions.

Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. The West fears it could allow Iran to build an atomic bomb.
