Russian Permanent Representative in international organisations in Vienna Vladimir Voronkov reported this on Friday, the news agency said.
The talks are to take place on Sunday in the Austrian capital.
"The minister will not participate in talks, I am instructed to participate in this meeting," Voronkov said.
Voronkov specified that "Lavrov is accompanying Russia's President Vladimir Putin in his visits to Latin American states".
"However, this doesn't mean any changes in the configuration of Russia's delegation at the talks," the diplomat emphasised. "Ryabkov (Russia's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs is still the delegation's head," Voronkov noted.
On Thursday, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, who coordinates the activities of the six world powers at the talks with Iran, invited the ministers to The Austrian capital on Sunday in order to discuss the course of the work on the final agreement on Iran's nuclear programme.
Representatives of the US State Department and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs have already confirmed that their top diplomats, US Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, will attend.
