IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano's Remarks to Media in Vienna on Iran Talks

July 4, 2015

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear

The IAEA has intensified engagement with P5+1 and Iran in order to make the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action technically sound. On July 2 I went to Tehran and met with President Rouhani and Admiral Shamkhani, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, in order to accelerate the resolution of all the outstanding issues. Progress was made on the way forward, but more work is needed. With cooperation from Iran I think we can issue a report by the end of the year on the assessment of the clarification of the issues related to the possible military dimensions.

Once an agreement is reached on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the IAEA is ready to implement the nuclear related elements when requested.
