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 President Hassan Rouhani will come on a three-day visit to India starting Thursday at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the External Affairs Ministry announced on Wednesday.

Rouhani will also call on President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday.

According to Iranian news agency Irna, Rouhani will first arrive in Hyderabad on Thursday where he will meet the city’s Muslim Ulemas. He will also meet Iranian nationals, including students, residing in India.

Citing the Iran President’s deputy chief of staff for communications and information Parviz Esmaeili, Irna said following the delegation-level talks on Saturday, both sides will sign a number of agreements.

Business leaders of both sectors are also scheduled to hold a joint meeting to review cooperation opportunities and capacities, according to Esmaeili.

This will be Rouhani’s first visit to India after he assumed office in 2013.

It comes after Modi’s visit to Tehran in 2016 during which a trilateral agreement on transit and transport was signed between India, Iran and Afghanistan.

The first phase of the port was inaugurated by President Rouhani in December last year, a little over a month after the first consignment of wheat from India to Afghanistan was sent via this facility.

The port opens a new strategic transit route between Iran, India, Afghanistan and other Central Asian nations bypassing Pakistan.

India-Iran bilateral trade stood at $12.89 billion in 2016-17, according to figures provided by the External Affairs Ministry. IANS
