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.
