Russia expects Iran nuclear deal for sanctions relief to be implemented in January

VIENNA - Russia's envoy to the UN's nuclear watchdog said on Monday he expected that a historic nuclear deal between Iran and world powers would be implemented in January, leading to sanctions relief for Tehran.
Under the deal, Iran must scale back its nuclear program, including its stockpile of low-enriched uranium, which it plans to do via a swap for non-enriched uranium with Russia. This swap will be done before the end of the year, Russia's envoy Vladimir Voronkov told reporters in Vienna.
