Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent out a tweet Monday that sounded like a nuclear deal had been reached between his country and the P5+1 powers currently in the midst of overtime talks in Vienna.

He quickly deleted it, but not before Business Insider political editor Brett LoGiurato got a screen grab:


Iraqi Foreign Minister Javad Zarif sent out a tweet with a very different message, indicating that "if" a deal were reached it would be a "triumph of diplomacy."


The talks originally had a deadline of June 30, which was extended a week, then extended again. Anonymous participants to the talks said Sunday that a deal would be announced Monday, but when press cameras were allowed inside the negotiating room on Monday all the participants displayed stone faces, indicating no deal may be coming soon.

Republicans have criticized President Barack Obama's administration, saying he is desperate for a deal and is allowing Iran to many concessions, including allowing it to build a nuclear weapon within 10 years.

Israel is not part of the talks, but with Iran saying it wants to wipe Israel from the map, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged the United States and other participants not to sign a deal that gives Iran a nuclear bomb.

Netanyahu tweeted in Farsi on Monday in a message aimed at the Iranian people. He said ordinary Iranians actually would fare better from a deal that eliminates their government's nuclear capability because "the more the regime feels strong and impervious to foreign pressure, the more it increases domestic oppression."
