Iran on Wednesday said there was "every possibility" that the next round of talks on its disputed nuclear program would result in a deal despite what Tehran said were Israeli attempts to scuttle the process in Geneva.

"I am willing to accept serious progress instead of an agreement but I think that with the political will we can reach an agreement," AFP quote Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying.

However, Iran's chief negotiator accused Israel of seeking to "torpedo" the negotiation process as leaders in Jerusalem have been adamant against any deal that would offer an easing of sanctions on Tehran in exchange for limited nuclear concessions.

"Statements coming out of Israel indicate they are not interested in finding solution, they've been trying to push for problems," AFP quoted him as saying on the eve of the third round of Geneva nuclear talks.

"They have been trying so hard to torpedo the process... Why is it they do not want this result?," he added.
