ANKARA (Reuters) - Iran's interim nuclear deal with major powers will come into force on January 20, a spokeswoman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.

"Capitals have confirmed the result of the talks in Geneva ... the Geneva deal will be implemented from January 20," the spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham, told reporters in Tehran, the semi-official Mehr news agency said.
