Riga: French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Friday more work needed to be done to reach a deal on Iran`s contested nuclear programme as an end-March deadline looms over the talks.

"There has been progress but as regards the numbers, controls and the length of the agreement, the situation is still not sufficient, so there is more work to be done," Fabius said on the sidelines of an EU foreign ministers meeting in the Latvian capital Riga.
