TEHRAN, Iran (AP) The European Union's foreign policy chief says there is "no guarantee" world powers will reach a final deal with Iran.

Catherine Ashton was in Tehran on Sunday for meetings with Iranian officials on negotiations over the country's nuclear program.

Under an interim deal in November, Iran agreed to limit a key nuclear activity, uranium enrichment, in return for easing sanctions by the West.

Negotiations for a final deal are ongoing. Ashton leads the six-nation group the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany in talks with Iran.

"There is no guarantee we'll succeed," she told reporters in a joint briefing with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Zarif said Iran will only accept a deal that respects its "rights," a reference to uranium enrichment on its soil.
