Putin Hopes for Early Iran Deal

Russia's President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he hoped Iran and the major powers would reach a final agreement on Tehran's nuclear program soon.
Putin, who was speaking at an annual economic forum in St Petersburg, also said the process of implementing the nuclear accord will take about six months, Sputnik reported.
"I think the signing should take place in the near future, but most importantly, and we met with the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (Yukiya Amano) yesterday, the process of implementing these agreements will begin afterwards. It will require about six months," Putin said.
Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) are in talks to craft a comprehensive settlement to resolve the long-drawn-out dispute over Tehran's nuclear program by the end of this month.
In April, after signing a political framework understanding, Iran agreed to accept restrictions on its uranium enrichment capacity and level and its stockpile of enriched uranium for specified durations in exchange for sanctions relief. However, Iran and the six major powers still disagree on a number of issues, including the timing of lifting sanctions and a verification and inspection system to monitor Tehran's compliance with the terms of the deal.
