VIENNA – The latest developments as Iran and world powers prepare to implement a landmark deal reached last year to curb Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions (all times local).
Iran's foreign minister says an imminent compliance report by the U.N. nuclear agency will trigger the implementation of the historic nuclear accord reached with world powers last year, bringing a "good day" for Iran.
Mohammad Javad Zarif says the report will mark "Implementation Day," when world powers provide Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for it curbing its nuclear program.
Speaking in Vienna on Saturday, where he was to meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and top EU diplomat Federica Mogherini, Zarif called for greater cooperation to fight the "terrorism and extremism" that has engulfed the Middle East. His comments were broadcast on state TV.
