Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano reassured Iran that nuclear agency would not come under the influence of political pressures.
Amano told the Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi that IAEA relies only on observations and verifiable facts in making its reports.
In a meeting at Iran’s embassy in Rome on Monday, Amano said that what matters for the IAEA and what shapes the basis of its reports and comments is tangible assessment of different countries’ nuclear activities and commitments.
As a result, the IAEA chief added, political developments would not affect the UN nuclear agency’s evaluation of the nuclear issues.
Amano further noted that the IAEA has confirmed in all of its reports that Iran has been honoring its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a nuclear agreement between Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
The two officials also discussed the latest political developments surrounding the JCPOA and the US administration’s recent stances and comments, according to Iranian media.
