Iran's FM Zarif says sanctions on Iran will be lifted today



Iran’s Foreign Minister says the landmark nuclear deal with the P5+1 will come into effect after a final report by the IAEA on Tehran's compliance.

Upon arrival in the Austrian capital Vienna, Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters that the International atomic Energy Agency will release its report later today. Zarif said then a joint statement will announce the implementation of the historic agreement.

This would pave the way for lifting Western sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear energy program. The top Iranian diplomat will meet with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and US Secretary of State John Kerry.
