United Nations watchdog won't inspect Iran sites despite U.S. pressure

United Nations watchdog won't inspect Iran sites despite U.S. pressure”

But he told The Associated Press that under monitoring conditions accepted by Iran, his agency "has access to (all) locations without making distinctions between military and civilian locations" as it works to ensure that Iran doesn't have hidden nuclear activities.

Iran has remained within key limits on its nuclear activities imposed by its 2015 deal with world powers, a United Nations atomic watchdog report said on Thursday.

A number of news agencies have quoted the findings of the confidential report from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Haley's visit came as part of a review US President Donald Trump has ordered into the nuclear deal, which was signed between Iran and world countries, including the US itself, in 2015.

Iran remains in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report showed, despite tensions between Tehran and Washington threatening the agreement.

This second estimate is much better than the first (+2.6 per cent), is higher than the expectations of analysts (2.7 per cent). The economists expect that the hurricane Harvey, which is now hitting Texas and Louisiana, weighs in on the economic growth.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on August 31 that Iran is showing its "true colors" by renewing ties with the Palestinian militant group Hamas and providing it with arms.

On Wednesday France suggested the 2015 nuclear deal could be supplemented through "future consultations" to include the post-2025 period and tackle Iran's development of ballistic missiles. Iran will not accept any inspection of its sites and "especially our military sites", he said.

The U.S. has isolated itself from other signatories in its search for reasons to declare Iran to be noncompliant.

The U.S. State Department said in a statement that Washington has "full confidence in the agency and its highly skilled and professional inspectors". "The IAEA, US intelligence community and our allies in the P5+1 have all affirmed Iran's compliance". He noted that "if they [Trump administration] want to bring down the deal, they will", while also stressing that the resort does not want to "give them an excuse" to do that.

In June, shortly after the IAEA's last report on Iran said its heavy water stock stood at 128.2 tonnes as of mid-May, Tehran said it would ship 20 tonnes overseas, officials told Reuters at the time.

Turkish bodyguards charged in bloody embassy beatdown
Sinan Narin and Eyup Yildirim, two of those indicted who were not a part of the Turkish security detail, were arrested on June 14. The Turkish Embassy claimed the protesters, who were located across the street from the Embassy, were members of a terror group.

The 2015 deal sought to allay fears that Iran was producing nuclear weapons by severely restricting its nuclear development in exchange for the lifting of billions of dollars' worth of global sanctions against Tehran.

Trump has twice verified Iran's commitment to the deal in reports submitted to Congress.

"I don't make any disguise of the idea that ultimately it may take an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear program to stop it", he said.

Iran agreed to mothball for at least a decade the majority of its centrifuges used to enrich uranium and sharply reduce its low-enriched uranium stockpile.
