Iran pushed back Wednesday against US demands for concessions at nuclear talks, declaring it would never "kneel" over what curbs Tehran must accept to win an end to the sanctions choking its economy.
Both Iran and the six world powers it is negotiating with want an accord by July 20.

"We have never bowed down to imposition and we will not accept it in this round of talks either," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters in Vienna. (AP)
