UN watchdog: Iran living up to its nuclear commitments 

September 17, 2018

TEHRAN - Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano once again confirmed on Monday that Iran is honoring its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran, the European Union and the 5+1 nations (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany).

According to the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran agreed to scale down its nuclear activities in exchange for termination of sanctions.

“Since the last General Conference, we have continued to verify and monitor the implementation by Iran of its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” said a statement by Amano read at the 62nd IAEA General Conference.

The conference opened in the Austrian capital of Vienna on Monday.

The statement added, “Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA. It is essential that Iran continues to fully implement those commitments”.

Amano added, “The Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement. Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran continue.” 

Also on September 10, the UN nuclear watchdog chief said in his introductory statement to the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna that Iran was implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA.
