Diplomats haggle into final hours of nuke session

Diplomats haggle into final hours of nuke session

Diplomats are still dueling over the wording of a declaration into the final hours of a monthlong treaty conference considering a detailed plan for small steps toward nuclear disarmament.
The 28-page proposed Final Declaration includes a sharply debated proposal to move toward banning nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction from the Middle East.
The backroom bickering twice caused a delay in convening a morning session to bring the declaration up for consensus approval. The session has now been postponed until 3 p.m. EST (1900 GMT). Iran and Syria are among the states objecting to elements of the complex declaration.
