World powers, Iran to implement interim Geneva n-deal

Geneva, Jan 13 : An agreement was finalised between the P5+1 group of nations and Iran on ways to implement the first-step Geneva agreement on Tehran's nuclear programme, according to a statement from European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

Ashton, who has presented the P5+1 group during the previous rounds of Iran nuclear talks, said in the statement that initial measures to implement the interim Geneva deal inked in November were finalised after the latest two-day meeting which concluded Jan 10, Xinhua reported Monday

The meeting was held in the presence of European External Action Service (EEAS) EEAS Deputy Secretary General Helga Schmid, who represented Ashton, and Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi.

The technical and concrete measures were hammered out after three rounds of expert-level meetings between the P5+1 group, namely the US, Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany, and Iran, partly with the involvement of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
