WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says there are "still significant gaps" and more work to do on Iran nuclear talks.

The president told reporters Wednesday that he will consult with Congress and allies to determine whether negotiations need to be extended after the July 20 deadline.

Two diplomats told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday that the parties to the talks plan to extend them since they have not yet been able to reach a deal.

The talks aim at a deal that curbs Iran's atomic programs in exchange for an end to the nuclear-related sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Obama says it's clear "real progress" has been made in several areas and there is a "credible way forward."
