VIENNA (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday he held good talks with his U.S. counterpart over Tehran's nuclear program, with less than a week to go before a July 20 deadline on reaching an agreement on ending the dispute.

"We had a good exchange of views," Zarif said after meeting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Vienna, according to Iran's official news agency IRNA.

He added that "serious discussions" now needed to take place at the level of political directors, referring to senior foreign ministry officials leading the delegations.
