Summary:Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran and the five permanent members of the UN plus Germany will discuss the final step of the Joint Plan of Action, already concluded between the two sides, mid February.
"On the sidelines of Davos meeting we agreed with Mrs. Ashton to hold Iran-G5+1 talks by mid February," Zarif said in his Facebook page.
He also said the meeting was expected to be held earlier, but it was postponed due to Chinese New Year.
Last week, a source form the EU said that the Union would begin lifting sanctions against Iran on Monday, January 20, the minute it receives the word that Tehran has begun implementing the nuclear deal.
European insurers up until then had accounted for 90 percent of coverage for deliveries of Iranian oil anywhere in the world.
The EU will also suspend bans on trade in gold, precious metals and petrochemical products while increasing a ceiling on financial transfers not related to remaining sanctions.
Earlier this month, Iran and the six world powers finalized an agreement on ways to implement the Geneva nuclear deal, which the two sides struck in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013, from January 20 that is today.
On November 24, Iran and the world powers sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program. In exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.
