GENEVA: The expert-level nuclear talks between Iran and six major world powers concluded in the Swiss city of Geneva on Tuesday, while according to Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, talks on implementing an agreement reached last month on Iran’s controversial nuclear program made relatively good progress.

On Monday, the expert-level nuclear talks between Iran and the US, Britain, China, France, and Russia plus Germany began in Geneva to sort out a mechanism to put into force the landmark interim deal struck between the two sides on November 24.

Abbas Araqchi said on Tuesday that the Iranian experts will submit their reports to political deputies and directors, since certain issues have remained that should be resolved at the political level.

On November 24, Iran with the US and five other world powers struck a historic nuclear deal in Geneva to pave the way for the full resolution of the decade-old dispute over its nuclear energy program.

As part of the deal which would last for the six-month period only, the world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Iran, in exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities.
