The United States approved conditional sanctions waivers for Iran Sunday, though it cautioned they would not take effect until Tehran has curbed its nuclear program as required under a historic nuclear deal reached in Vienna on July 14 .Sunday was "adoption day" for the deal, which came 90 days after the U.N. Security Council endorsed the agreement reached by Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China under which most sanctions on Iran would be lifted in exchange for limits on Tehran's nuclear activities.In Iran, Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Iran expects that the U.S. and other Western countries that negotiated the deal will show their "good will" through lifting sanctions.However, one U.S. official suggested Saturday that the quality of answers Iran might have provided to the IAEA was not relevant when it came to deciding whether to press forward with sanctions relief on implementation day.
