    Previous meeting between Russian Foreign Minister and US Secretary of State was held on Sunday after Lavrov’s arrival to Vienna.

    VIENNA, November 24 (Sputnik) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry began their second meeting on the sidelines of the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna Monday, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    Their previous meeting was held Sunday, following Lavrov's arrival in the Austrian capital.

    The final round of the talks between Tehran and P5+1 group began on November 18 in Vienna, with Russia, the United States, United Kingdom, France, China and Germany expected to sign a comprehensive long-term deal with Iran by November 24.

    July was the previous deadline for reaching the agreement guaranteeing the peaceful nature of Tehran's nuclear program.

    Iran's nuclear program has been a matter of concern for a number of countries as western nations have been accusing Tehran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of civilian activities with Iran denying the claim.

    Due to the controversy surrounding Iran's nuclear program, the country has been targeted with sanctions by the UN Security Council, the European Union, the United States and several other nations.
