VIENNA: The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iranian officials held a meeting in Vienna to review the progress in the implementation of their cooperation agreement.

In a statement issued following the meeting late on Monday, the IAEA said “progress was reviewed on the implementation of practical measures (to be taken by Iran)… agreed three months ago.”

“Iran has taken several actions and that some related work continues. Discussions on additional practical measures to be implemented in the next steps are ongoing,” the IAEA said.

In February, Iran and the IAEA reached an agreement on seven practical measures to be implemented by the Islamic Republic as voluntary measures by May 15, 2014.

Iran has agreed to provide mutually agreed relevant information and managed access to the Saghand uranium mine and the Ardakan concentration plant in the central province of Yazd.
