|Iran complying with nuclear deal: diplomats||
Diplomatic sources say an imminent UN nuclear agency report would confirm that Iran is scaling back its nuclear activities as agreed with world powers in a landmark accord last year, Reuters reported on Thursday.
They said the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) would probably verify in a monthly update that Iran was living up to its part of the interim agreement struck in November, designed to buy time for talks on a long-term deal.
The update “will show continuing compliance,” one Western diplomat said on Thursday.
The report is also expected to include information about Iran’s agreement with the IAEA this week to take more practical measures as part a framework agreement on further cooperation signed last November.
The undertaking could advance the nuclear agency’s further investigation into Iran’s nuclear activities, and may also help Iran and six world powers to negotiate a broader deal to end a decade-old dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program.
