Iran will not bow to "excessive demands" in nuclear talks with the major powers, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Saturday, adding that negotiations had entered a critical stage.

"We will definitely oppose excessive demands," Zarif said as the talks in Geneva stretched into a fourth day in the search for an elusive deal.

The talks had entered a "very difficult stage," following the arrival to join them of the foreign ministers of all six powers, he added.
