JERUSALEM (Reuters) - France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Sunday it was "still not clear" whether a world powers deal could be reached on Iran's nuclear program by a June 30 deadline.

In talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who urged him to "stand firm" on an agreement that Israel has criticized for not guaranteeing Tehran will not obtain a nuclear bomb, Fabius told reporters:

"We need to be extremely firm, at the stage where we are now, things are still not clear."
