Iran and the European Union will
hold a two-day meeting in Geneva on Thursday to discuss
implementing a landmark nuclear deal between the Islamic state
and major powers, Iranian state news agency IRNA reported on
"We will meet (EU negotiator) Mrs. Helga Schmid in Geneva on
Thursday and Friday," Iran's deputy foreign minister, Abbas
Araqchi, told IRNA.
Schmid is a deputy of EU foreign policy chief Catherine
Ashton, who has overseen contacts between six world powers and
Iran on the nuclear standoff.
Iran and the P5+1 - the United States, France, Britain,
Germany, Russia and China - reached a deal on Nov. 24 in Geneva
aimed at curbing the country's most sensitive nuclear work in
return for easing some economic sanctions.
Nuclear experts from Iran and the six powers have since held
several rounds of talks to resolve various technical issues
before the accord can be put into place.
