Progress has been reported in talks on implementing a landmark deal aimed at easing concerns over Iran's nuclear program.

After two days of discussions in Geneva, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said EU and Iranian officials had found "solutions for every difference" but more consultations were needed.

That assessment was shared by a spokesman for the EU, which is negotiating with Iran on behalf of six world powers -- the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany -- in diplomatic efforts on Tehran's nuclear work.

The U.S. State Department was also upbeat, but said reports that a deal had been reached were inaccurate.

Talks are focusing on working out the practical details on implementing a November 24 accord under which Iran agreed to curb its nuclear work in return for some sanctions relief.
