Lavrov still upbeat over chances for Iran nuclear deal

Vienna, Jul 13, IRNA — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reaffirmed he is still optimistic on prospects for a nuclear accord with Iran.

Asked by the press in Vienna on Monday, if there was chance for an Iran deal

tonight, Lavrov replied, there is always a chance.

Lavrov meet with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier in the day.

Talks between Iran and six western powers have apparently bogged down over a
