Kerry says “significant gaps” remain in Iran nuclear talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said that “significant gaps” remained in negotiations seeking to broker a historic but elusive-looking deal on Iran’s suspect nuclear programme.

“Obviously we have some very significant gaps. We need to see if we can make some progress … it is vital to make certain that Iran is not going to develop a nuclear weapon, that their programme is peaceful,” he told reporters as he arrived for the talks in Vienna.
