VIENNA, July 13 (Reuters) - Foreign ministers from Iran and six world powers will meet at 9:00 p.m. (1900 GMT), three hours before the latest deadline for a nuclear deal expires, Iranian state media reported on Monday.

Tasnim news agency, without citing a source, said it would be an "important" meeting. Iranian state television also reported about the ministerial meeting.

Several Western officials said they were unaware of such a meeting having been scheduled yet. (Reporting by Bozorgmehr Sharafedin Nouri in Dubai and John Irish, Arshad Mohammed and Louis Charbonneau in Vienna, writing by Louis Charbonneau, edting by Arshad Mohammed)
