It increasingly appears there will not be an agreement with Iran to limit its nuclear activities -- at least not by June 30.

je*63N8#utq

On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met in Vienna with the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano. Their talks came a day before the deadline that negotiators had set to reach a nuclear deal.

As he prepared to meet with Mr. Amano, Mr. Kerry said "we are just working and it is too early to make any judgments."

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was not at the talks. He returned to Iran late Sunday. But he is expected to return to Vienna on Tuesday.

Banks, money Machines closed in Greece

tO0zWLgiqm,|V3t]Q3P7

Banks and money machines are closed Monday in Greece. The country has ordered its banks and stock market closed for six days.

X_eEd(y*FKjl+UT%=]

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced the moves on Sunday. His announcement came hours after the European Central Bank said it would not continue an emergency loan program. That program had given Greek banks enough money so they could stay open.

+yVrerEH5KbRyW

Experts say Greece likely will be unable to make a payment on its $1.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund. The payment is required on Tuesday.

zCjIL=4~CBF1.LDLjQ-

The banks and the stock market will likely stay closed until July 5. That is when Greek voters will decide whether to accept new economic reform measures. The country's creditors are demanding the reforms. The Greek government is urging voters to say no to the demand unless the lenders agree to changes.

China is giving the bank almost $30 billion. The bank will begin operations with about $100 billion. China will control more than 25 percent of the votes in the bank. India and Russia are the second- and third-largest shareholders.

F7=[6mX!|dCUJ

The United States and Japan have refused to join the bank. They are worried about its rules. The U.S. asked many of its allies in Africa, Europe and South America not to join the bank, but most of them did.
