Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (C) walks in the Beau Rivage Palace Hotel in Lausanne on March 31, 2015, during negotiations on Iran's nuclear programmeRussia and Iran's foreign ministers claimed in the early hours of Wednesday a breakthrough in talks on a framework deal curtailing Tehran's nuclear programme, but the US said not all issues had been agreed. "One can say with relative certainty that we at the minister level have reached an agreement in principle on all key aspects of the final settlement of this issue," Russian media quoted Sergei Lavrov as saying at talks in Switzerland. This came after Russia's top diplomat and the foreign ministers of five other major powers and Iran missed a midnight (2200 GMT) deadline to agree the main outlines of what they hope will be an historic accord but continued working through the night. The powers hope this final agreement, due to be finalised by June 30, will see Iran scale down its nuclear programme in order to prevent Tehran developing nuclear weapons under the guise of its civilian programme.
