Fmr US envoy hails IAEA report on Iran commitment

IRNA – Samantha Power, former US Ambassador to the United Nations in a message lauded the recent report released by the IAEA on Iran complying with the nuclear deal.

The International Atomic Energy Agency in its 12th periodical report on Thursday once again verified Iran’s adherence to its nuclear deal with world powers known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“Real diplomacy gets real results,” Power tweeted on Friday.

This is the 12th IAEA report after the JCPOA implementation and the second one after the US withdrawal from the accord.

The new IAEA report once again verified that Iran’s nuclear activities are fully in compliance with the provisions of the JCPOA.

The IAEA in its report has reaffirmed that its inspectors have had access to all Iran’s nuclear sites with ease.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet urged all parties to the Iran nuclear deal to fulfill their economic obligations and avoid making extraneous demands.

“If preserving JCPOA is the goal, then there is no escape from mustering the courage to comply with commitment to normalize Iran’s economic relations instead of making extraneous demands, being the party to still honor the deal in deeds & not just words is not Iran’s only option,” he said.
