BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union extended the suspension of sanctions on Iran until July 10 to allow ongoing talks on a long-term nuclear agreement with it to succeed, it said on Tuesday.

Iran and six major powers, including the EU, will negotiate beyond their self-imposed deadline of Tuesday to strike a deal on curbing Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
