Home / News / World /  Iran, global powers complete talks on implementing nuclear accord

New York: Iran and six world powers cleared technical hurdles on how to implement an agreement to curb the Persian Gulf nation’s nuclear program in return for an easing of sanctions, Iranian and European Union officials said.

The implementation accord still needs to be approved by all the governments involved, Iran’s deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi said, according to the Islamic Student News Agency.

Iran and the so-called P5+1 countries — China, France, Russia the UK and the US, plus Germany — reached an accord on 24 November in Geneva that still hasn’t taken effect.

We found solutions for all the points of disagreement, but the implementation of the Geneva agreement depends on the final ratification of the capitals, Araghchi said, according to ISNA. He said governments should respond to the proposals within two days, without giving details of what was agreed.

Araghchi held talks on Friday with US and European Union officials. There was very good progress on all the pertinent issues, EU spokesman Michael Mann said in a statement on his Twitter account.

In Washington, state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said it was inaccurate to say the technical talks had been completed, without giving details.BLOOMBERG
