Diplomats in Vienna to Concoct Adoption Day

A team of diplomats has gone to Vienna to prepare for the announcement of the Adoption Day as agreed under the nuclear pact with major powers in July, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said.
"My colleagues are leaving for Vienna. If everything goes as expected, Oct. 19 will most likely be the Adoption Day," Ali Akbar Salehi said on Thursday.
Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs and senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi and AEOI spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi are among the team, he said.
According to the deal signed between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany), 90 days after the UN passed a resolution on July 20 to endorse it, the day is known as the Adoption Day. It is the time when the seven states parties start making arrangements and preparations for implementing their commitments.
The nuclear chief was quoted by IRNA as saying, "'The adoption' does not involve signing any document. It means that the two sides formally announce their approval of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action," as the deal is officially known.
The action plan provides for the lifting of sanctions after it goes into force in return for limitations for specified durations on Tehran's nuclear program.
On Adoption Day, "the European Union will formally announce the termination of its sanctions. US sanctions will be partly terminated and partly ceased formally by US President Barack Obama," Salehi said.
He expressed the hope that the JCPOA will come into effect by the end of the Iranian year that ends in March 2016.
