WASHINGTON (AP) – Secretary of State John Kerry will be meeting tomorrow with Iran’s foreign minister and a top official of the European Union, to discuss the progress toward implementing the Iran nuclear deal.
The State Department says the meeting will take place in Vienna.
Before the deal can be formally implemented, the International Atomic Energy Agency must verify that Iran has complied with its terms. That is expected to happen in the next days, possibly Saturday.
The White House said today that it’s not yet ready to suspend U.S. economic sanctions against Iran because its compliance with the nuclear deal had not been verified.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Iran is making important progress toward curbing its nuclear program and it’s possible the Islamic Republic has already completed all the necessary steps.
