IAEA's Amano, Iran's nuclear chief hold talks in Tehran

Iran: No IAEA demand for military site inspection

Iran Has Fulfilled All Obligations under JCPOA: UN Nuclear Chief

The IAEA is in charge of monitoring restrictions on Iran's nuclear program under the nuclear agreement.

The director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano has not submitted any request for inspection of Iranian military sites, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said.

Since January 2016, the IAEA has monitored Iran's nuclear commitments under the nuclear agreement and conducted verification checks, said Amano.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that Iran would remain committed to its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal as long as Iran benefits from the agreement, Tasnim news agency reported.

Rouhani's vow to push ahead came after the US House of Representatives voted in favor of legislation last week that would hit individuals and entities assisting Iran's missile development with fresh sanctions.

Tehran views Trump's hostile rhetoric and the new United States sanctions as a violation of the nuclear deal.

"We should not allow the (JCPOA), as an important achievement, to be undermined, and we must consolidate this important global commitment with full cooperation", the Iranian president added.

"We will produce any weapons of any kind that we need and stockpile it and use it at anytime to defend ourselves", he added.

Commenting on Trump's recent claims about possible unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA, the president said that the incumbent USA administration showed that it had "lack of commitment to an global agreement" and did not respect negotiations and accords, adding that such country can not be trusted.

"You are disregarding past negotiations and agreements approved by the UN Security Council and expect others to negotiate with you", he said.

The 2015 accord, signed by Iran as well as Germany, Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, saw economic sanctions on Iran lifted in exchange for curbing its nuclear activities.
