By Temkin Jafarov - Trend:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is visiting Germany today to participate in the Munich Security Conference, IRIB News reported.
During the visit Zarif met with the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to the report.
The parties discussed the continuation of the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group.
The details of the meeting have not been reported yet.
Iran and the P5+1 reached a nuclear agreement on Nov. 24. Iran has agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities for six months in return for sanctions relief.
Iran and the P5+1 group have agreed to implement the agreement starting from Jan. 20.
Under the agreement, six major powers agreed to give Iran access to $4.2 billion in revenues blocked overseas if it carries out the deal, which offers sanctions relief in exchange for steps to curb the Iranian nuclear program.
The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies. The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical researches instead.
