IAEA: Iran has stayed within the limits of nuclear deal

May 27, 2016

The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a quarterly report on Iran that the country has stayed within the limits of a nuclear deal it reached with world powers last year on its stockpiles of uranium and heavy water.

“Throughout the reporting period, Iran had no more than 130 metric tons of heavy water ... Iran's total (low) enriched uranium stockpile did not exceed 300 kg,” the report said on Friday, according to Reuters.

“There shouldn’t be any surprises for anyone. Iran continues to honor its commitments,” a senior diplomat said. “At this point in time it’s clearly below the 300 kg limit.”

In July 2015 Iran and the 5+1 group - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany - finalized the text of a nuclear deal according to the deal Tehran was obliged to restrict its nuclear activities in exchange for termination of economic sanctions, including financial restrictions, on Iran. The nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, took effect in January 2016.
