• IAEA once again verifies Iran's compliance with nuclear deal

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has once again confirmed that Iran is living up to its commitments under the 2015 multilateral nuclear agreement.

According to Press TV, the UN nuclear agency said in a report that the Islamic Republic is sticking to the deal's key parameters such as the number of uranium centrifuges and stockpiles.

Iran has informed the IAEA of a decision "to construct naval nuclear propulsion in future” and the agency has requested “further clarifications and amplifications," the report added.

The IAEA, which is tasked with monitoring Iran's nuclear activities, has repeatedly verified Tehran's full commitment to its side of the bargain. 

Iran's Ambassador to the IAEA Reza Najafi said Thursday's report was the IAEA's tenth since the deal took effect, adding that the document once gain confirms that Iran's nuclear activities are in accordance with the JCPOA.

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), he said, had sent a letter to the IAEA and informed it of its decision to work on the nuclear propulsion.

Najafi further stressed that Iran, along with other IAEA member states, expects the agency to continue its "technical and neutral" work to verify the implementation of the JCPOA.
