International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released a new report on Iranˈs peaceful nuclear activities on Friday in which the Agency has confirmed that there has been no diversion in Iranˈs nuclear programs, IRNA reported.
The report says Iran has implemented one of the five practical measures that it agreed with the Agency in May 2014 in the third step of the Framework for Cooperation by the agreed deadline of 25 August 2014; implemented two of the five measures after the deadline; and began discussions with the Agency on the other two practical measures.
The report said IAEA continues its work of monitoring and verification according to Joint Plan of Action (JPA) and confirms that there has been no diversion in Iranˈs nuclear activities but adds while the Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material at the nuclear facilities and LOFs declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement, the Agency is not in a position to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and therefore to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.
The Agency requested that Iran propose new practical measures by 2 September 2014 to be implemented by Iran in the next step in relation to the Framework for Cooperation.
Accprding to the report, the Agency has continued to undertake monitoring and verification in relation to the nuclear-related measures set out in the Joint Plan of Action (JPA).
The report says since the JPA took effect, Iran has not enriched UF6 above 5% U-235 at any of its declared facilities. As a result of downblending and conversion that has taken place over the same period, Iran no longer has a stock of UF6 enriched up to 20% U-235.
According to the report, while enrichment of UF6 up to 5% U-235 continues at a rate of production similar to that indicated in the Director General's previous reports, as Iran has begun converting some of this nuclear material at the Enriched UO2 Powder Plant (EUPP), the amount of such nuclear material that remains in the form of UF6 enriched up to 5% U-235 has decreased to 7,765 kg.
The report goes on no additional major components have been installed at the IR-40 Reactor and there has been no manufacture and testing of fuel for the reactor.
It says Iran has continued to provide the Agency with managed access to centrifuge assembly workshops, centrifuge rotor production workshops and storage facilities.
