IAEA Reconfirms Iran's JCPOA Commitment

The Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency said the UN agency's latest report once again confirms Iran's full commitment to its nuclear agreement with world powers.
Reza Najafi made the statement on Wednesday, following a report by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano on Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name of the nuclear deal. Iran and major powers signed the nuclear deal in July 2015. It went into effect on January 16 and resolved a long-running western dispute over the Iranian nuclear program, Press TV reported.
"Amano's new report once again confirms that Iran's nuclear activities in various fields, including enrichment, research and development, redesigning the Arak heavy water reactor and heavy water production, are continuing within the framework of JCPOA," Najafi said.
He stressed that in accordance with the report, the IAEA will continue to monitor Iran's nuclear activities.
Amano's report, which was sent to the IAEA Board of Governors and the United Nations Security Council, also noted that Iran had informed the IAEA of its plan to transfer 5 tons of heavy water out of the country.
Under the JCPOA, the Islamic Republic has agreed to roll back certain aspects of its nuclear program, including the production of enriched uranium with purity levels of higher than 3.67%, and has provided international atomic monitors enhanced access to its nuclear facilities. In return, Iran's partners agreed to terminate all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran.
