'Narrow gaps' between Iran and the P 5+1?

In a sign that a deal with Iran may once again be approaching, western foreign ministers have joined the P 5+1 talks in Geneva
Only "narrow" gaps separate Iran and P5+1 world powers from reaching agreement on Iran's nuclear program, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Saturday.
Hague was among the foreign ministers who joined the talks Saturday after hints a final agreement could be reached. The US State Department announced Friday that "after consulting with EU High Representative Ashton and the negotiating team on the ground, Secretary Kerry will travel to Geneva later today with the goal of continuing to help narrow the differences and move closer to an agreement."
Hague said that any deal must be "truly worthwhile," the BBC reported. "There are narrow but important gaps," he said, "and it's very important that any agreement is thorough, detailed and it's an agreement in which the whole world can have confidence."
European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton is leading the talks, which are being conducted by the United States, Russia, France, China and Germany, vis-à-vis Iran.
The talks began Wednesday and were scheduled to end Friday.
What could go wrong?
