Kerry to meet Zarif, Mogherini in Vienna on Saturday for nuclear deal talks
US Secretary of State John Kerry will hold trilateral discussions in Vienna with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini on the implementation of the Iran nuclear agreement, US Department of State spokesperson Mark Toner said in a press release.
"Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Vienna, Austria on Saturday for consultations with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action," Toner stated on Friday.
On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany, signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The agreement guarantees the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
Earlier on Friday, the White House said Iran has made progress in upholding its commitments outlined in the nuclear agreement. However, the Obama administration did not provide an update as to when the agreement will be fully implemented.
