Japan eyes investment pact with Iran after sanctions end

     The plan is for Japan to lift sanctions against Iran as soon as the U.S. and Europe do. Behind-the-scenes bilateral discussions have laid the groundwork for working-level talks Tokyo hopes to begin after the sanctions end, Japanese government sources told The Nikkei.
