Russia’s Lavrov to travel to Iran for nuke deal talks

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will visit Iran next week to discuss issues including the interim deal reached by world powers and Tehran over its nuclear program, Reuters reported citing Russian media.

After a decade-long standoff, Iran and six powers including Russia reached a deal on November 24 under which Tehran agreed to curb elements of its nuclear activities in exchange for limited relief from economic sanctions.

During the visit on Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, Lavrov plans to discuss the situation surrounding Iran's nuclear program "in the context of the agreements recently reached in Geneva," Interfax quote a Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying.
