SHAFAQNA – The IAEA has released a report, saying that Iran is abiding by its commitments on not expanding nuclear activities.
Iran is honoring its commitment not to expand nuclear activities while it negotiates with six world powers on a lasting nuclear deal, according to a confidential UN report released.
Obtained by The Associated Press shortly after it was posted on the internal website of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, the report could be used by the White House to argue that Iran is negotiating seriously.
The IAEA has said that it keeps monitoring Iran’s compliance with its commitments which includes the following items:
— not enriching uranium above 5 percent, which is substantially below the 90-percent level needed for nuclear weapon.
— diluting or converting most of its stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium, which can be further enriched to weapons-grade material.
— not advancing work at an underground uranium enrichment facility.
— maintaining a construction freeze on nearly finished reactor that would produce substantial amounts of plutonium.
