The altercation happened Monday evening as foreign ministers from Iran and six major powers including US Secretary of State John Kerry met in Vienna seeking to nail down a historic nuclear accord.This prompted Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to threaten to drag the others before an international court for supporting former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, an arch enemy of Iran, the reports said.Russian Foreign Minister Sergei added at the talks, jokingly, that no one should ever threaten a Russian either, Iranian media reported.The normally smiley Zarif, 55, who has spearheaded Iran's efforts to seal the nuclear deal for the past almost two years, is known to have something of a fiery temper.
