Nuclear negotiations with Iran are now running into overtime and it's unclear what type of deal will be reached -- if any.

Three of six foreign ministers have left the talks in Switzerland, leaving behind U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his British and German counterparts.

The United States and its partners reportedly want curbs on Iranian nuclear activities that could lead to the production of nuclear bombs while Tehran wants a deal that will end economic sanctions.

Kerry postponed his planned departure Tuesday and Iran's lead negotiator says his team will stay as long as needed to reach an agreement.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "Now is the time for the international community to insist on a better deal," explaining that a better deal "would significantly roll back Iran's nuclear infrastructure."

Efrem Graham spoke with CBN Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell about the Iran nuclear talks, as well as the Palestinian Authority joining the International Criminal Court and the impact that will have on Israel. Click play below to watch.

"Yesterday, an Iranian general brazenly declared, and I quote, 'Israel's destruction is non-negotiable,' but evidently giving Iran's murderous regime a clear path to the bomb is negotiable. This is unconscionable," Netanyahu charged.

Following the statement, Netanyahu welcomed House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to his Jerusalem residence, where the two men are holding a working lunch meeting.
