UN Atomic monitor preparing to release Iran’s nuclear activity review
The UN atomic watchdog is preparing to release its latest report on whether Iran continues to comply with the 2015 deal aimed at keeping Tehran from building nuclear weapons in exchange for incentives.
The Times of Israel reports that the issue has grown more complicated since the US withdrew unilaterally in May from the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and then re-imposed sanctions. Iran’s economy has been struggling ever since and its currency has plummeted in value.
The other signatories to the deal — Germany, Britain, France, Russia and China — are continuing to try and make it work.
The International Atomic Energy Agency will issue its latest quarterly assessment today. In its last quarterly report, it concluded Iran had stayed within key limitations set by the JCPOA.
