ANKARA - The European Union's top diplomat arrived in Tehran on Tuesday to discuss implementation of a nuclear deal reached between Iran and six major powers aimed at curbing the country's nuclear work in return for the lifting of sanctions, state TV reported.

The deal was reached on July 14 between Iran, the United States, France, Russia, China, Britain and Germany to end more than a decade-old standoff over the disputed nuclear program.

"The EU's (Foreign Policy Chief Federica) Mogherini arrived in Tehran and she will meet top officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister (Mohammad Javad) Zarif and some other officials," state TV reported.

Iran's deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takhteravanchi earlier said "mutual cooperation, the nuclear deal and regional matters" would also be discussed between Mogherini and Iranian officials during her one-day visit.

On Monday, Mogherini met Saudi Arabian officials to try to alleviate the concerns of Iran's arch-rival over the deal that she helped broker.
