The latest IAEA report on Iran has, as with all previous reports over the past two years, affirmed that the nation is still fully in compliance with the P5+1 nuclear deal. Iran’s uranium stockpiles remain well below their caps established by the deal.
The reason this report is particularly important this month is that it comes just a week after the US, who withdrew from the deal six months ago, imposed all the nuclear sanctions eased by the deal back on Iran.
Despite this, the IAEA report confirmed there was “nothing that indicates that Iranian cooperation or the Iranian attitude has changed” since the US sanctions went back into effect. Iran has warned that if the world can’t guarantee them sanctions relief they may not remain in the deal.
So far, however, that’s not been an issue. Despite US threats and demands, virtually the whole world has refused to go along with the US sanctions, and Iran affirms that they continue to be able to sell all the oil they need on the international market.
