Representatives from Iran and the United States were poised to meet in Geneva on Monday for their first full-scale official talks in decades aimed at bridging the gaps in negotiations for a deal on Teheran's disputed nuclear program.

Neither the location nor the program of the two-day meeting has been announced. However, the main issue is expected to be finding a route toward an eventual lifting of sanctions against Iran.

Abbas Araqchi, a vice-foreign minister who will lead the Iranian delegation, said on Sunday that the tete-a-tete with US officials was essential as the negotiations are delicately poised.
