Iran is keeping to 'nuclear-related commitments' under deal: United Nations nuclear watchdog

Reiterating the necessity to maintain the 2015 nuclear deal, French President Emmanuel Macron suggested opening new global talks on a Iran post-2025 nuclear program that would include its ballistic missile program and its regional influence.

Iran is implementing "nuclear-related commitments" under its deal with world powers, the United Nations nuclear watchdog confirmed on Wednesday, a day after US President Donald Trump pulled out of the agreement with world powers.

"As of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran", Yukiya Amano, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said in a statement.

"The IAEA is closely following developments", Amano said.

Amano previously said the JCPOA's loss would be "a great loss for nuclear verification and for multilateralism".

UN Secretary-General António Guterres said in a statementshortly after the United States announcement, that he was "deeply concerned" by the decision, and called on the remaining parties to preserve the deal.In a live televised address, he did not claim that Iran was in violation of the terms of the deal, but described its so-called "sunset provisions" - which lift restrictions on the country's ability to enrich uranium within 10 to 15 years - as "totally unacceptable".

Foreign Minister Taro Kono has reiterated Japan's support for the Iran nuclear agreement.

Earlier in his remarks, Rouhani reported that Tehran has adopted necessary measures to confront new anti-Iran pressures, saying that his USA counterpart is launching psychological war and economic pressure on Tehran by announcing withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

However, many analysts said that the presentation had merely rehashed what was already known about Iran's previous activities. The deal was created to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the removal of worldwide sanctions on the country.

However, under the terms of the JCPOA, Iran had pledged to co-operate with the IAEA to answer its concerns over the "possible military dimensions" of its nuclear programme.
