UN Nuclear Chief To Visit Iran

  • Iran: No IAEA demand for military site inspection

The 2015 accord included a ban on high-level uranium enrichment - 20% or more - that would take Iran close to the level needed for a nuclear weapon.

"We should not allow the (JCPOA), as an important achievement, to be undermined, and we must consolidate this important global commitment with full cooperation", the Iranian president added.

Yukiya Amano, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, held talks on Sunday with Iran's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi.

Also, in a meeting with Amano on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif emphasized that all parties to the nuclear deal must remain committed to it.

The visit comes as US President Donald Trump, in a major confrontational stance against Iran, refused to certify the multilateral deal on Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.


According to reports, the Trump administration hopes that the threat of renewed sanctions will induce Iran to agree to new restrictions on the missile program.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that Tehran will continue to produce missiles for defence purposes and does not believe it to be a violation of worldwide accords, Al Jazeera reported.

Donald Trump earlier this month refused to recertify Iran's compliance with the JCPOA, citing violations of the spirit of the agreement and threatened to trigger USA withdrawal from the agreement despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed that Tehran is adhering to the deal. Amano also added that the JCPOA is a "significant gain for verification".

The United States has already imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a UN resolution, which calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

"You object to our weapons, we are going to manufacture and store any kind of weapons we need", Rouhani said. In exchange, the USA and other countries agreed to curb economic sanctions against Iran.
