IAEA Confirms Iran’s Compliance with JCPOA Again
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Saturday confirmed once again that Iran has been honoring its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
In his quarterly reports to the IAEA Board of Governors, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano confirmed that the nuclear commitments undertaken by Iran were being implemented.
“IAEA inspectors have continued to inspect facilities in Iran, have taken hundreds of environmental samples, and carried out activities supported by state-of-the-art technology, including data collecting and processing systems,” he said.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) reached the 159-page nuclear agreement in July 2015 and implemented it in January 2016.
Since the historic deal was signed in Vienna, the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed the Islamic Republic’s compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA, but some other parties, especially the US, have failed to live up to their undertakings.
