IAEA: Iran Continues Meeting Commitments Under Nuclear Deal

Iran fully implements all of its requirements under deal

As has been exclusively the case in recent years, IAEA Chief Amano Yukiya issued a statement Wednesday confirming once again that Iran is still meeting all commitments it has under the P5+1 nuclear deal.

Under the deal, the IAEA is responsible for verifying that Iran is meeting all of its requirements under the pact. Since the deal’s implementation, the IAEA has consistently affirmed that Iran is meeting those requirements.

Which is a source of tensions between the international watchdog and the Trump Administration. The administration has repeatedly declared Iran in violation, but can’t get anyone else to confirm that, and has pushed the IAEA to make new demands on Iran, which the IAEA has said are unwarranted.

As the international community tries to save the P5+1 deal after the US withdrew from it, the IAEA reports are increasingly important, in underscoring that the deal was, and is, wholly intact, and it was only the US that decided to abandon it.
