Tehran: Iran will implement in around four months’ time the landmark nuclear deal agreed with major world powers, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said here on Wednesday.

“We will take the measures required of us and the other side will do its part,” Zarif said. “It will take around four months,” he added.

Under the deal reached on Tuesday in Vienna, Iran agreed to limit its controversial nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of crippling international sanctions.

The final round of talks in Vienna involved nearly three weeks of intense negotiation between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Zarif.

Sanctions will be lifted once the UN atomic watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) vouches that Iran has implemented the Vienna deal and scaled back its sensitive nuclear activity.

Billions of dollars of Iran’s assets will be unfrozen when the deal starts to be implemented, Iran’s state news agency IRNA reported on Tuesday.

Under the deal, bans or restrictions on economic cooperations with Iran will be lifted in all sectors including investment on oil and gas, aviation, the central bank, shipping and civil aviation, IRNA said.

Iran appers to be unhappy with the way Twitter is cracking down on fake accounts as the country’s Foreign Minister has alleged that the microblogging site is shutting down accounts of “real” Iranians while letting anti-government bots to thrive.

Addressing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday said that the accounts of “real” Iranians blocked by Twitter include those of some TV presenters and students, CNET reported.

“Hello @Jack. Twitter has shuttered accounts of real Iranians, (including) TV presenters & students, for supposedly being part of an ‘influence op,'” Zarif wrote in a tweet.

“How about looking at actual bots in Tirana used to prop up ‘regime change’ propaganda spewed out of DC? #YouAreBots,” he went on to say in the same tweet, referencing Albania’s capital.

Facebook and Twitter came under the radar of investigators for their alleged failure to prevent spread of divisive news stories on their platforms in the lead up to the US presidential election in 2016.

The social media giants last month announced they had collectively removed hundreds of inauthentic pages, groups and accounts linked to disinformation campaigns.
