IAEA Board of Governors welcomes Iran’s commitment to deal
Tehran, Iran, March 9
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
The IAEA Board of Governors has welcomed Iran's adherence to its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran Ambassador to the IAEA Reza Najafi said.
It was also agreed that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano continue to provide reports as he has, he told IRNA news agency March 9.
Two days earlier Amano presented IAEA's report on Iran, saying the body had no indications of a diversion of nuclear material toward non-civilian purposes.
"The Agency has found no indication of the diversion of declared nuclear material from peaceful nuclear activities in Iran," Amano said in his introductory statement to the Board of Governors on Monday.
"Iran's Additional Protocol has been provisionally implemented since January 16th, 2016," he added.
The JCPOA, reached between Iran and the group 5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany), was put to force on January 16, ending a long dispute over Iran's nuclear program.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Najafi said that there are no special inspectors in Iran, but rather some inspectors as regularly assigned by the IAEA for all countries.
