Iran and the "P5-plus-1" countries -- Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany -- have been negotiating on how to carry out an agreement reached in November that would temporarily halt some of Iran's nuclear activities, in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.

Araghchi said solutions have been found "for all the points of disagreement, but the implementation of the Geneva agreement depends on the final ratification of the capitals."

Officials have privately suggested a Jan. 20 target date for ratification.

The two-day round of talks was held amid pressure to implement the agreement, regarded at the time as a diplomatic breakthrough that could lead to resolution of Iran's nuclear activities.
