Tehran: Iran`s foreign minister says Israel is trying to undermine the progress achieved in Tehran`s nuclear talks with world powers.

The negotiations, which ended in Geneva on an upbeat note this week with Western and Iranian negotiators announcing a follow-up round early next month, are meant to reduce fears that Tehran is seeking a nuclear weapon.

Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif posted on his Facebook page today that "there is a high possibility the talks would be disturbed through various efforts" on the part of Israel.

Zarif says this reflect Israel`s "frustration and warmongering."

Israel has urged the international community to maintain firm pressure on Tehran.

The West suspects Iran`s nuclear program could eventually be used to produce atomic weapons. Iran insists it is only for peaceful purposes.
