MOSCOW, July 19. /TASS/. The implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the settlement of the situation around Iran’s nuclear program has entered a sustainable phase, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday citing members of the joint commission of Iran and the six powers (Russia, Great Britain, Germany, China, the United States, and France) who had a meeting in Vienna earlier in the day.
"In general, representatives of the six powers, Iran and the European Union noted with satisfaction that thanks to joint efforts the JCPOA implementation has entered a sustainable phase," the ministry said.
The meeting, according to the Russian foreign ministry, focused on practical aspects of cooperation in this format and the current situation with the implementation of the agreements, including ways to settle potential problems. "The sides continued to discuss certain technical elements facilitating mutually acceptable solutions within the joint commission and the process of Iran’s return to the international financial and economic markets following the abandonment of the sanctions," the ministry said.
A deal on Iran’s nuclear program was reached on July 14, 2015. On January 16, 2016, the parties to the deal announced beginning of its implementation. Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange of abandonment of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.
