Tehran, Dec 3 — Iran and the world powers will hold an expert-level meeting in Vienna Dec 8-9 to discuss implementation of the Geneva nuclear deal, the Iranian foreign ministry's spokesperson announced here Tuesday.

According Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham, the two-day Dec 8-9 meeting is aimed at preparing the implementation of the deal reached Nov 24 in Geneva between Iran and the P5+1 group -- the US, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany, reports Xinhua.

Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency will also participate in the meeting as observers, so that they could obtain an accurate understanding about the deal, added Afkham.

The implementation of the deal could take time because the world powers need time for preparation, she said.

Afkham also said the Fact Sheet released by the White House was only one-sided narration of the agreement. "The four-page Joint Plan of Action is clear on the obligations of all sides."

The White House interpretation of the deal contained much stronger wording than the more balanced Joint Plan of Action stemmed from the negotiation in Geneva.

The Fact Sheet called the deal "a set of initial understandings that halts the progress of Iran's nuclear programme and rolls it back in key respects. These are the first meaningful limits that Iran has accepted on its nuclear programme in close to a decade."

Also, the Fact Sheet said Iran was committed to halt progress on the growth of its 3.5 percent enriched uranium stockpile which the Iranian officials denied.

The US and its allies will provide Iran limited relief of sanctions on its oil, gold, petrochemicals, auto industries and civil aviation with an estimated value of about $7 billion under the terms of the six-month nuclear deal.

In exchange, Iran agreed to halt enrichment above five percent and neutralising its stockpile of near 20 percent uranium by means of dilution or converting.

The document says Iran also agreed not to make advances of its activities at Natanz and Fordow enrichment plants and at the Arak reactor.
