IAEA Establishes Office on Iran

International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano announced on Monday the establishment of the Office of Iran Safeguards Verification in the IAEA's Department of Safeguards on March 1.
Amano made the announcement in an address to the agency's board of governors in Vienna, according to a transcript of his remarks posted on the website of the UN nuclear watchdog.
Pointing to his recent report on verification and monitoring of Iran's nuclear commitments under the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers, he said, "The agency has found no indication of the diversion of declared nuclear material from peaceful nuclear activities in Iran."
Amano also said Iran's Additional Protocol has been provisionally implemented since January 16, the day the nuclear accord came into force.
The IAEA has been requested by both its board of governors and the United Nations Security Council to undertake verification and monitoring of Iran's nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the official name of the nuclear deal), and to report to the board and, in parallel, to the UN Security Council.
"Implementation of the JCPOA has just started. Iran has to implement its commitments under the JCPOA for many years to come and the agency has to verify, monitor and report on its implementation," Amano said.
"I will continue to report in an objective and factual manner details which the agency considers necessary to meet our responsibilities under Security Council Resolution 2231 [issued on July 20, 2015 to endorse the JCPOA] and the board resolution of December 2015.
