|Iran, 5+1 experts to meet in Vienna today||
TEHRAN – Negotiators from Iran and the six major powers will hold expert meetings in Vienna on Monday and Tuesday to start working out steps to implement a recently reached deal in Geneva.
Iran and the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) clinched a deal on November 24, under which Tehran will offer some concessions on its nuclear activities in exchange for limited relief from the sanctions.
“The expert meetings between Iran and the 5+1 in Vienna will begin tomorrow (Monday) to develop practical mechanisms for the implementation of the Geneva agreement,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told the Mehr News Agency on Sunday.
“The Iranian team will be led by Hamid Baeidinejad, the director general of the political department of the Foreign Ministry, and sanctions, nuclear, and central bank experts will participate in the negotiations,” he stated.
Iran will also hold talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna on Wednesday, Araqchi added.
Reuters quoted IAEA spokeswoman Gill Tudor on Saturday as saying that the UN nuclear agency - which will be tasked with verifying that Iran carries out its part of the November 24 interim accord - "will have some involvement" in the expert meetings between Iran and world powers.
