WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday that the June 30 deadline for negotiating countries to agree on a deal that would limit Iran's nuclear capabilities may need adjustments.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the deadline is now "firm" but may be pushed back if needed, citing the extra three days negotiators took to agree on the initial framework for a deal.
