|Iran nuclear deal being implemented as planned: Amano||
TEHRAN – Iran is implementing last year’s interim nuclear deal with the six major powers as planned, Reuters quoted UN nuclear energy chief Yukiya Amano as saying on Wednesday, almost three months after the accord took effect.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is tasked with checking that Iran is complying with the terms of the November 24 agreement, under which Tehran agreed to scale down its nuclear program for six months in exchange for some sanctions easing.
The UN body issues monthly updates to IAEA member states about the implementation of the deal that entered into force on January 20, designed to buy time for negotiations on a final settlement of the decade-old dispute over Iran’s nuclear activity. The next one is expected around April 20.
“I can tell you, these measures are being implemented as planned,” Amano said during a visit to Oslo.
