|Iran, major powers to resume nuclear talks||
TEHRAN – Iran will resume technical talks with world powers in Geneva on Thursday and Friday over how to implement an interim nuclear deal signed last month, according to Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi.
The technical talks may continue into Saturday and Sunday if required, Iran’s deputy chief negotiator said.
Tehran and the six major powers clinched a deal in Geneva on November 24 according to which Iran agreed to limit its nuclear program for six months in exchange for modest sanctions relief.
The Geneva agreement is designed to provide time to negotiate a comprehensive deal to help resolve Iran’s nuclear issue.
The first round of technical talks on the Geneva deal, which was held in Vienna last week, was interrupted by Iran in what appeared to be a response to a U.S. sanctions measure to blacklist additional companies and people under the existing sanctions against the country.
The U.S. sanctions measure against Iran drew widespread criticism from Iranian officials. They said the move was against the spirit of the Geneva deal.
