Tehran: The fourth and final round of talks between Iran and the six world powers ended without making any progress.

The talks ended after failing to reach any conclusion to the decade-old dispute related to Iran`s nuclear programme.

The fifth round of talks were held between UN Security Council members - China, France, Russia, Britain and the US plus Germany – in Vienna. 
Western countries want Iran to significantly scale back its nuclear programme to address their concerns.

Since Iranian President Hassan Rohani took office last year, Iran promised to provide greater transparency to address Western concern, hoping to resolve the issue through diplomatic channel.

Under the Geneva deal made in last November, Iran suspends some of its nuclear activities while Western states some relevant sanctions in return.
