Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 31
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iran will hold talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) next week.
Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said the two sides aim to reach consensus on agreeable criteria in order to implement the nuclear pact, IRNA news agency reported on August 31.
Referring to the date of implementing Iran's obligations based on the nuclear agreement, he said that the procedure is forecast to take place 90 days after the UN resolution, which will likely fall between October 12-22.
Of course, the procedure may be implemented a couple of days sooner, he noted.
The IAEA has verified that Iran has fulfilled all its commitments regarding its nuclear program.
The IAEA in its most recent updated report on Iran's nuclear program reiterated that Tehran has maintained its level of uranium enrichment, nuclear research and development and other activity in line with its declarations to the UN nuclear monitoring body.
The report also covers activities by Iran before the country reached a comprehensive breakthrough agreement in nuclear talks with the Group P5+1 countries (the US, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany) in Vienna on July 14.
Under the agreement, Iran has agreed to some restrictions in its nuclear program primarily in return for the removal of sanctions against it.
