Iran nuclear talks race towards key deadline
Foreign ministers from major powers pressed their Iranian counterpart on Monday as they sought to slot into place the final but also the trickiest pieces of a deal curtailing Tehran's nuclear programme as Tuesday's deadline loomed. Britain's Philip Hammond said as he became the last of the foreign ministers to arrive in a rainy Switzerland that they "believe a deal can be done". "But it has to be a deal which puts the bomb beyond Iran's reach," he said. With time of the essence, US Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Hammond and the top diplomats of Russia, China, France and Germany are meeting for the first time since November.

Republicans see Obama as more imminent
By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A third of Republicans believe President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States, outranking concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. A Reuters/Ipsos online poll this month asked 2,809 Americans to rate how much of a threat a list of countries, organizations and individuals posed to the United States on a scale of 1 to 5, with one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat. The poll showed 34 percent of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat, ahead of Putin (25 percent), who has been accused of aggression in the Ukraine, and Assad (23 percent).

New York state lawmakers reach budget deal
New York state lawmakers agreed a budget plan late on Sunday night that includes much-debated reforms to the education system and ethics standards for lawmakers, state governor Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders said in statement. Cuomo lauded new ethics measures which he describes as "putting in place the nation's strongest and most comprehensive rules for disclosure of outside income by public officials." Cuomo pushed ethics reform after the arrest of House speaker Sheldon Silver on corruption charges in January in a bid to address Albany's tarnished image. New York has a very condensed budget window as it financial year ends on March 31 compared to May 31 for most other states. He has described New York as "leading the nation in education spending but lagging in results." The budget also caps spending growth at 2 percent for a fifth year.
