Iran, 5+1 discuss JCPOA in New York

TEHRAN, Sep. 29 (MNA) – For the first time after the nuclear deal, Iran and 5+1 FMs held a joint meeting in New York on Monday evening to discuss the implementation of JCPOA.

After 22 months of continuous negotiations, Iran and the 5+1 reached an agreement in Vienna on 14 July 2015 which led to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) which consists of five annexes including nuclear related commitments, sanctions related commitments, civil nuclear cooperation, joint commission, and implementation plan.

Iran and the Sextet fresh round of talks began on Monday evening in New York and lasted for one hour during which all parties exchanged views on future actions and preparation for the implementation of JCPOA.

The meeting was also attended by the European Union's Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini as well as deputy ministers of all sides.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif issued an order to establish ‘JCPOA Follow-up Commission’ on September 22 and appointed Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Seyed Abbas Araghchi as its head. Araghchi serves as Deputy for Legal and International Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
