Countdown to JCPOA EnforcementCountdown to JCPOA Enforcement

Iran and six world powers wrapped up expert-level talks in Geneva on Sunday after they studied ways of implementing a landmark deal on Tehran’s nuclear program. During the two-day meeting, the two sides’ experts tried to finalize measures prior to the implementation of the deal, dubbed as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The Iranian delegation was chaired by Foreign Ministry’s Director General for International and Political Affairs Hamid Baeidinejad, Tasnim News Agency reported.

“The countdown has begun for the implementation day and the removal of sanctions,” Baeidinejad said in a message shared on his Instagram page.

Iran and P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) reached the nuclear deal on July 14, 2015, after several rounds of intensive diplomatic talks. The agreement would see the removal of nuclear-related sanctions against Iran in return for time-bound restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear activities.
