EghtesadOnline: Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano said on Monday that he was proud of the trust placed in IAEA professionalism by the two parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
He made the remarks in his address to the 60th IAEA General Conference.
Amano said the fact that the IAEA enjoyed the trust of all parties in carrying out the very complex issue was owing to the professionalism, objectivity and impartiality of IAEA inspectors, reports IRNA.
In the case of Iran, the IAEA had worked from 2003 onwards to verify the country's nuclear program, reporting regularly on Iran’s implementation of its Safeguards Agreement with the Agency and of relevant UN Security Council resolutions, he said.
'Last year, we provided a clear, factual assessment of Iran’s past nuclear activities,' Amano said.
“The work of the Agency was indispensable in paving the way for the diplomatic breakthrough achieved last year in the form of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. We are now verifying and monitoring Iran's implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under that agreement.'
