TEHRAN (FNA)- South Korean Parliament Speaker Kang Chang-hee hailed Iran’s voluntary suspension of its 20% uranium enrichment program as a first step in the implementation of its Geneva nuclear deal with the six major world powers.
After meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Sunday, Kang said that Iran has implemented the Geneva agreement very well.
South Korea parliament speaker, heading a 21-man parliamentary delegation, arrived in Tehran on Sunday noon.
On November 24, Iran and the world powers sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program. In exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.
Then after several rounds of experts talks on how to enforce the agreement, Iran and the six major world powers finalized an agreement on ways to implement the deal.
On Monday, a confidential report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that Iran has halted its 20-percent enrichment activity under a ground-breaking deal struck with the six world powers in Geneva late in November, paving the way for the easing of some western sanctions against Tehran.
