UN Nuclear Chief To Visit Iran

Iran: No IAEA demand for military site inspection

Iran: No IAEA demand for military site inspection

U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier this month that the United States could not formally certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear accord.

Iran's adherence to the deal was also confirmed by Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano who visited Tehran on Sunday.

Today, based on joint efforts made by Iran and the IAEA, the agency can declare that the Islamic Republic has fulfilled all its obligations under global regulations and the deal, Amano said.

During the meeting, the new Tanzanian non-resident Ambassador to Tehran Mubarak Nasser Mubarak presented his letter of credence to the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and said, "Iran has achieved great success and advancements in various scientific and technical fields, particularly in energy industry, and I hope we can benefit from Iran's experiences and expertise".

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said Tehran will stick to the agreement as long as the other signatories do, but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out, as Trump has threatened to do. "The IAEA believes that the JCPOA is a significant gain for verification", he added.

Whitefish has said the company has expertise in mountainous areas, and arrived in Puerto Rico before other companies. Ricardo Rossello has also asked the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general to look into the deal .

Several times in the speech, Rouhani took aim at the United States for what he called its "shaky" commitment to the nuclear deal negotiated under the Obama administration.

Defence officials told Foreign Policy magazine the review will not only focus on existing programmes, but also take stock of new threats posed by Iran and North Korea, and the changing nuclear and ballistic missile posture of both Russian Federation and China.

In a press conference with Salehi on Sunday, Amano again insisted that Tehran is living up to its commitments under the deal. In exchange, the USA and other countries agreed to curb economic sanctions against Iran.

In a speech to Parliament, he said, "We will build, produce and store any weapon of any kind we need to defend ourselves, our territorial integrity and our nation, and we will not hesitate about it".
