Tehran skips UN conference on nuclear energy in UAE
Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency, urged the IAEA Director General, Yukiya Amano, to remain impartial with regard to upholding its landmark Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which was struck by global powers in 2015 and sees Tehran stop its nuclear programme for alleviating sanctions.
Amano visited Tehran on Sunday.
Behrooz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said on Monday that Iran has put nuclear-propulsion system for vessels on its agenda as part of efforts to counter the anti-Iran U.S. moves.
Mr. Amano reiterated that the JCPOA represents a clear gain from a verification point of view, and stressed the importance of full implementation by Iran of its nuclear-related commitments in order to make the JCPOA sustainable. The agency head also met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, reiterating the IAEA's position that the Islamic Republic has continued to hold up its end of the nuclear deal.
Amano, whose agency is in charge of monitoring those restrictions, says the deal already subjects Tehran to the world's toughest nuclear inspection regime.
Al Jazeera describes Amano's latest "verification of compliance" as "a moment of vindication for Iran and another worldwide rebuke of the White House".
The announcement comes on the heels of a dispute between Washington and Iran over U.S. President Donald Trump's decision this month not to certify Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.
Rouhani, for his part, said Sunday, "We should not allow the (nuclear deal), as an important achievement, to be undermined, and we must consolidate this important global commitment with full cooperation".
