IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Nov 1, IRNA -- The nuclear agreement reached between Tehran and the six world powers is expected to be implemented early in January, a senior lawmaker quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi as saying.

Araqchi was quoted as saying by rapporteur of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Nozar Shafiei.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was adopted by Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) in Vienna on July 14.

Araqchi said that except for two cases, all other parts of the roadmap between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency has been implemented and IAEA director general will give a report to IAEA Board of Governors within nearly one month.

The deputy foreign minister noted that the IAEA Board of Governors will convene on December 15 to present a resolution that will put an end to the so-called possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran's nuclear program.

It is expected that the implementation of the JCPOA will begin within the next two months and the sanctions will be terminated, suspended or stopped under the term of the nuclear deal.
