Closed-door talks resumed today between Iran and world powers on implementing a landmark deal about Tehran's nuclear programme in exchange for easing sanctions.
European Union foreign policy spokesman ”Michael Mann" told AFP that the Geneva meeting began at 8:30 am but that no further details would be available immediately.
Technical experts from Iran and the E.U-chaired "P5+1" group - comprising the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany - also held a session two weeks ago in Geneva amid efforts to fine-tune a deal reached by their foreign ministers in the Swiss city on November 24.
The latest talks were set to last for one day, before a break for New Year, Iran's official news agency IRNA quoted deputy foreign minister and nuclear pointman "Abbas Araqchi" as saying.
Earlier this month, experts held four days of talks in but the Iranians walked out after Washington expanded its sanctions blacklist against Tehran.
