Upon his arrival at the venue of the talks, William Hague told reporters that it's too early to talk about extension of the July 20 deadline for reaching a final agreement. Hague said in order to be able to solve deep differences they need to talk.

Laurent Fabius also told reporters: "We have a long day ahead and have to talk all day long."
