IAEA: Accili, Iran nuclear deal is key in non-proliferation architecture

VIENNA, JUNE 11 – On the second day of the IAEA Board of Governors meeting in Vienna, the Italian permanent Representative to the International Organizations Maria Assunta Accili took the floor to reiterate that the Iran nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA) is a key element of the non-proliferation architecture. “We strongly urge Iran to continue to implement its nuclear commitments in full as it has done until now”, Ambassador Accili aid in her address.

It is essential that Iran fully implements its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano told yesterday the Agency’s Board of Governors. Mr Amano noted the announcement by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council on 8 May that it had “issued an order to stop some of Iran’s measures” under the JCPOA.

“I am worried about increasing tensions over the Iranian nuclear issue,” he said. “As I have constantly emphasised, the nuclear-related commitments entered into by Iran under the JCPOA represent a significant gain for nuclear verification. I therefore hope that ways can be found to reduce current tensions through dialogue. It is essential that Iran fully implements its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA.”

Since January 2016, the IAEA has been verifying and monitoring Iran’s implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA.

“The Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement. Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran continue,” Mr Amano told the 35-member Board, which is holding its regular, quarterly session this week.
