Iran complying with nuclear deal says UN watchdog
Iran complying with nuclear deal, says UN watchdogIran has a breakthrough nuclear deal with major world powers in 2015, AFP reported. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has addressed major limitations under this convention, which has been under intense scrutiny since the election of Donald Trump.
The report says Tehran has not pursued the construction of existing heavy water research reactors and has not enriched uranium enriched by more than 3.67 percent. Stockpile of low enriched uranium that can be used for peaceful purposes in Iran is 101.7 kilograms, far below the 300 kilometer agreed upon when it is further processed into a nuclear weapon. Senior diplomats say Tehran has reached a recent ceiling. Another key condition is about the moderate level of Iran, which is a modified form of water used in certain types of reactors.
According to a recent report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran did not exceed the permitted level of 130 tons. Plutonium for nuclear weapons can be extracted from nuclear fuel rods used in heavy water reactors. In November 2016, the nuclear watchdog pointed out that Iran had exceeded 130 tons.
Tehran has shipped oversupply and the inventory is slightly above 124 tons. “Iran has not carried out uranium enrichment or related R & D activities at the Fordo nuclear power plant,” the IAEA added. After the negotiations ended, the verification continued with the fifth UN audit. Under the agreement with Iran, Iran has dramatically reduced its nuclear activities to completely block its nuclear weapons. Iran insisted that it should pay for its impending North Korea sanctions. This Agreement shall be extended for a period of at least one year in which Iran needs to retain nuclear weapons for up to one month.
Iran has cut two – thirds of its uranium centrifuge and has cut enough tonnes of uranium to handle bombs several times, removing the nuclei of the Arak reactor, which can provide Iranian nuclear – grade plutonium.
However, the agreement, approved by the European Union, was in an unstable position since Trump’s inauguration, called “the worst negotiation negotiation” in last year’s campaign.
The tensions between Iran and the United States have been retreating for several months, but Tehran has deteriorated due to military exercises since the launch of the missile test on January 29.
The White House responded by imposing new sanctions on Iran’s arms procurement network. Tehran argues that military power is for “purely defensive” purposes.
