World powers and Iran agree on nuclear framework in ViennaUpdated: 2014-02-21 03:35:14 KST
Some positive developments have emerged from international talks on Tehran's disputed nuclear program
Iran has agreed a framework for talks with world powers in Vienna on a deal to limit its nuclear activities.
Tehran and six world powers -- the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France, and Germany -- agreed on Thursday on the framework for the next four months.
The next round of talks will take place on March 17th, again in Vienna.
The West wants to eradicate Iran's capability to build nuclear weapons, while Tehran is aiming to have tough international sanctions lifted.
Despite the good start, experts say the process will be a complicated one.
The deadline for a final, permanent agreement is July, but there is the option for an extension if need be.
