A dispute over UN sanctions on Iran's ballistic missile programme, as well as a broader arms embargo, are said to be among the main issues holding up a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday a weapons embargo on Iran was the main obstacle still to be overcome at talks between six major powers and Tehran on its nuclear programme, Interfax news agency reported.

"I can tell you that there is only one big problem in terms of sanctions - it is the problem of a weapons embargo," Lavrov was quoted as telling reporters.
