UN agency: Iran abiding with terms of nuke deal
Vienna: The UN nuclear agency says that Iran is keeping commitments it agreed to with six world powers in a pact that temporarily caps its nuclear activities and eliminates material that could be most easily used to make nuclear weapons.
The finding is contained in a restricted International Atomic Energy Agency report released yesterday and obtained by The Associated Press.
Under the agreement reached late last year, Iran agreed not to increase the scope or capacity of its uranium enrichment program. Iran says it needs the program to make reactor fuel, but uranium can also be used for the fissile component of nuclear warheads if enriched to high levels.
Iran also agreed to eliminate its enriched uranium stockpile closest to weapons grade. It insists it does not want such arms.
