IAEA Verifies Iran Compliance Based on JCPOA Terms

IAEA Verifies Iran Compliance Based on JCPOA Terms IAEA Verifies Iran Compliance Based on JCPOA Terms

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday reiterated the fact that the UN nuclear agency has verified Iran's compliance with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers. "The IAEA verification of Iran's compliance with JCPOA is based on terms of agreement, not the ulterior motives of US officials, nor of lobbyists," Zarif wrote on his Twitter account, as cited by Tasnim News Agency on Sunday. His comments came after the most recent quarterly report by the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed once again that Iran has been honoring its commitments under the nuclear agreement. The most recent quarterly report came as a surprise to the US administration, which has signaled its eagerness to declare Iran in breach of the deal. US President Donald Trump had said in August he did not consider Iran in compliance and dispatched his UN envoy to Vienna to convey his concerns.

However, the IAEA officials made it clear that they would not help Trump make a false case for abandoning the accord.
