Tehran, June 12 - Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said that the meeting with Russia has proved to be very helpful and would further continue in Vienna.

Araqchi met Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov Wednesday in Rome, IRNA news agency reported.

Consultations on Iran's nuclear program with the Russians have continued, and now at the threshold of the next round of Vienna negotiations they are of greater significance, Araqchi said.

Araqchi also said that nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 or the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, China, Russia, France, Britain - plus Germany, were also discussed during the meeting with Ryabkov.

A two-day meeting held Monday and Tuesday between Iran and US in Geneva was termed as constructive. The meeting focused mainly on nuclear issues, but the sanctions imposed on Iran by the US were discussed during the meetings.
