Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 21
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran's deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi arrived in Vienna, Austria on April 21 to attend the third session of the Joint Commission established under the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers.
Representatives from Iran and the P5+1(US, UK, Germany, France, China, Russia) will attend the session which is scheduled for April 22, IRNA news agency reported.
The issues related to the implementation of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action aka nuclear deal) will be discussed during the meeting.
The Iranian delegation will also hold mutual meetings with some members of the P5+1 on the sidelines of the session.
The second session of the JCPOA Commission was held last December in Vienna.
Any problem arising from the implementation of the JCPOA, are addressed by the commission.
Iran and the P5+1 group of countries agreed in July 2015 on a landmark nuclear deal to curb Tehran's sensitive nuclear activities in return for lifting of the sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The international sanctions on Iran were removed as the JCPOA entered the implementation phase on Jan. 16.
