Chief nuclear envoy, Abbas Araqchi, said the world powers with which Iran concluded a deal last year to curb its atomic program in exchange for sanctions relief had agreed with Tehran on Tuesday that obstacles to banking with Iran should be removed.

"It was clear that the message was for the US Treasury ... to make more clarification for banks and economic entities that wish to work with Iran and create a positive and constructive atmosphere for them to work," Araqchi said after meeting diplomats from the United States and other major powers in Vienna, Reuters reported.

"This is a major issue which should be dealt by the US administration ... I think there is a big request ... to make more clarification and remove obstacles in the way of banking transactions with Iran."
