Amano: IAEA Reports Not Influenced by PoliticsAmano: IAEA Reports Not Influenced by Politics

International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano said the UN nuclear agency relies only on "observations" and "verifiable facts" to prepare its reports, assuring Iran that the IAEA would not be influenced by political pressures. What matters for the IAEA and what shapes the basis of its reports and comments is "tangible assessment" of countries' nuclear activities and commitments, Amano said in a meeting with the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, at Iran's Embassy in Rome on Monday, Tasnim News Agency reported. As a result, the IAEA chief noted that political developments would not affect the agency's evaluation of nuclear issues. Amano added that the IAEA has confirmed in all of its reports that Iran has been honoring its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal with major powers. The two officials also discussed the latest political developments with regard to the nuclear deal and the US administration's unprincipled stances and comments on the landmark pact. IAEA alone is responsible for monitoring Iran's compliance with the terms of the nuclear deal.
