TEHRAN (ISNA)- A source close to Iranian nuclear negotiators said the country and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany have extended negotiations on Iranian nuclear program.

The source refused to give more details on extension of the talks.

A member of Iranian negotiating team has already said that if the two sides failed to agree on a political deal by Sunday night, the negotiations would be extended.

Monday is the final day of negotiations between the two sides in Vienna.

The 10th and last round of negotiations between Iran and six world powers is now underway in Vienna as the seven nations have just today to work on a final deal.

The 9th round of talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 included two days of trilateral talks among Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, US Secretary of State John Kerry and EU's Chief negotiator Catherine Ashton as well as an hour-long multilateral meeting between the Iranian and G5+1 top negotiators in the Omani capital on November 11 without any tangible results.

In July, Tehran and the six countries agreed to extend negotiations until November 24 after they failed to reach an agreement on a number of key issues.
