IAEA Report Affirms Iran’s Nuclear Activities Conform to JCPOA, as Before: Envoy
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A new report by the IAEA once again confirmed that Iran has lived up to its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran’s envoy to the UN nuclear agency said, noting that the only new things in the report are the country’s technical developments.
“The report has once again affirmed that all Iranian nuclear activities are going on in compliance with the JCPOA,” Iran’s Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency Reza Najafi said on Friday night, after the IAEA issued its latest quarterly report on Iran.
“The text of the (new) report is similar to that of the previous ones, and only technical developments have been added since the March report,” he noted.
In a quarterly report on Friday, the IAEA confirmed that Iran has been honoring its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a nuclear agreement between Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
According to the report, Iran's stock of low-enriched uranium has stood at 79.8 kilograms as of May 27, well below the agreed limit of 300 kilograms.
It has also verified that the level of uranium enrichment in Iran did not exceed a 3.67 percent cap – well under the maximum five percent deemed suitable for civilian application.
The IAEA is responsible for monitoring Iran’s nuclear activities as per the nuclear deal and should also help Iran develop its nuclear energy program.
