Iran and the six world powers are going to start implementing a deal they reached in Geneva over Tehran’s nuclear program, Iran Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham says.

“Iran and the P5+1 have reached agreement on how to implement the first phase of the Joint Plan of Action. It will take effect” on January 20, Afkham said on Sunday.

The development comes two days after Iran and the Sextet of world powers concluded two days of talks in Geneva about how to implement the landmark deal.

On Friday, Iran and the European Union said “very good progress” had been made in talks over outstanding issues pertaining to the implementation of the deal.

The deal was clinched on November 24, 2013, between Iran and the six powers – the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany.

Under the Geneva deal, the six countries undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Iran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities during a six-month period. It was also agreed that no nuclear-related sanctions will be imposed on Iran within the same timeframe.
