Vienna: Diplomats say the UN nuclear agency will meet January 24 on its role in supervising Iranian adherence to terms of a landmark pact reached between Tehran and six world powers.

The date was shared by two diplomats from member countries of the UN`s International Atomic Energy Agency.
They demanded anonymity because they were not authorised to reveal it before a formal IAEA announcement.

The November 24 deal commits Tehran to curb its nuclear programs in exchange for initial sanctions relief over six months as the two sides work toward a permanent agreement.
The accord designates the IAEA to oversee Iranian compliance with terms of the deal. The 35-nation IAEA board is expected to approve that role at the January 24 meeting.
