Iran and six world powers — the U.S, Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany — are meeting in Moscow Monday in an attempt to reach an elusive compromise on Tehran's nuclear activities. Diplomats say this could be the last of such talks and if no compromise is reached, it's unclear how things will proceed. Tehran insists its nuclear activities are for peaceful purposes only and has asked that sanctions against it be eased. Diplomats says the six powers are unlikely to lift existing sanctions but are willing to compromise in other ways.
