WASHINGTON - Iran's foreign minister said in a US television interview on Wednesday that he believed "we are very close," to a nuclear arms deal with Western powers, but cautioned there were details that needed to be worked out.

Mohammad Javad Zarif told NBC News that Iran was prepared to work "round the clock" to reach an agreement.

"We believe that we are very close, very close," he said.

Meanwhile he told Iranian media that "serious gaps" remain to be filled.

"We have one very serious problem and that is that there is a great deal of pressure that is being imposed by warmongers, by scaremongers who are trying to prevent the deal by scaremongering tactic, by lying, be demagoguery," Zarif told Iran's Press TV. Staff contributed to this report.
