In his introductory statement to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors in Vienna on Monday, the director of the UN nuclear watchdog updated the members on the enforcement of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran’s nuclear program.

Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran remain ongoing.”
