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
