  • IAEA reaffirms Iran's compliance with JCPOA

Iran is still implementing the 2015 accord over its nuclear program, according to a report by United Nations nuclear watchdog, the IAEA.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA ) report says Iran is abiding by the deal's key restrictions on its nuclear facilities.

The latest assessment from the IAEA comes weeks after US President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the accord, throwing its future into jeopardy.

Trump announced US withdrawal from the JCPOA on 8  May , and vowed to reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Tehran has said it would make a decision on its future role in the nuclear agreement in the coming weeks following negotiations with the other signatories of the deal.

EU powers have scrambled to save the JCPOA and protect their businesses in Iran against US sanctions.

َAlso, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) says Tehran is totally prepared to resume its previous nuclear activities if the 2015 deal with the 5+1 Group of countries is not fully preserved.

“We can say that we have everything in order if we want to go back to the activities we had before,” Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman for the AEOI, said in a Press TV interview, part of which was released on Wednesday.
