Iran to meet world powers over nuclear deal 'differences'

Posted September 14

— Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency reports that the country's foreign minister and his international counterparts will meet this month to discuss "some differences" over the implementation of the landmark nuclear deal.

The Wednesday report says they will focus on banking sanctions, which Iran complains have not been fully lifted. The meeting will take place Sep. 22, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

It will be the first ministerial-level meeting between Iran and world powers since the deal went into effect in January. Under the deal, Iran agreed to cap nuclear activities in return for a lifting of sanctions.

Iran and the U.S, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany have a right to call a ministerial-level meeting if they believe the deal is not being implemented as agreed.
