Iran has said that it hopes the mistrust that has existed with the United States can be dispelled by the successful implementation of a recently agreed nuclear deal.

In July, the Middle Eastern country, agreed with the major world powers including the United States to limit its nuclear programme.

Daniel Dickinson reports.

Iran's July agreement with the international community to curtail its nuclear programme will be rewarded by the lifting of economic sanctions that have devastated its economy.

Speaking to the media at the United Nations alongside US Secretary of State, John Kerry, the Foreign Affairs Minister of Iran, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said the deal would be a focus of discussions at the UN in the forthcoming week.

“We are going to concentrate in this meeting on the full implementation of the comprehensive plan of action. That is the project that we started together and we hope that by its full implementation, its good-faith implementation – we can vent some of the mistrust that has existed over the past many decades.

The UN nuclear energy agency the IAEA has been charged with reviewing information provided by Iran related to the country’s nuclear programme.
