Nuclear deal on Iran program to be implemented this year, says Iranian official - Reuters

Iran's nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi said on Monday he expected a deal with six world powers on shrinking Tehran's atomic program in exchange for sanctions relief to be implemented by year-end.
"Hopefully before the end of this year certainly we would have the implementation day," Araqchi told reporters after meeting senior officials from the United States, Russia, China, Britain, Germany and France in Vienna.
The United States and the European Union took formal legal steps on Sunday that will lift sanctions once Iran meets certain conditions such as reducing the number of centrifuges used to enrich uranium, and its enriched uranium stockpile.
Germany's foreign minister said the EU sanctions were likely to remain in place at least until January....

-bth: I think this is relevant because it defined the timeline for release of the embargoed funds that will be needed by Iran to pay the Russians for their equipment in Syria.
