Iran Honoring Commitments under JCPOA, IAEA Says
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran is abiding by its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, the UN atomic watchdog policing the pact reaffirmed, two weeks after the latest wave of reimposed US sanctions against Tehran took effect.
“Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” International Atomic Energy Agency Director-General Yukiya Amano told a quarterly meeting of his agency’s 35-nation Board of Governors, Reuters reported.
“It is essential that Iran continues to fully implement those commitments,” he added, confirming the findings of a confidential report to IAEA member states last week.
US President Donald Trump said in May he was pulling the United States out of the deal.
Germany, France and Britain have been scrambling to prevent a collapse of the deal, under which sanctions against Tehran were lifted in exchange for limits being placed on Iran’s nuclear activities.
