A senior Iranian nuclear official says the country has, based on the agreed time frame, provided the necessary documents to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over Tehran’s nuclear program.

Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), told reporters in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Saturday that Iran has fulfilled its obligations and presented the necessary documents to the UN nuclear body according to the roadmap signed by Iran and the UN agency in July.

Under the time frame agreed with the IAEA, Iran has presented to the agency its documents and explanations about the past activities or the so-called Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program and has remained committed to the agreed time frame, the official added.

The IAEA confirmed on Saturday that Iran has given the UN nuclear body the information regarding its past nuclear activities.

"Iran today provided the IAEA with its explanation in writing and related documents as agreed in the roadmap for the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran's nuclear program," the IAEA said in a statement on Saturday, confirming that Iran had met a deadline.

Iran-IAEA roadmap

On July 14, Iran and the IAEA signed a roadmap for “the clarification of past and present issues” regarding Iran’s nuclear program in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

After signing the agreement, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said the roadmap "sets out a clear sequence of activities over the coming months, including the provision by Iran of explanations regarding outstanding issues."

Amano added that the roadmap enables the IAEA to "issue a report setting out the agency's final assessment of possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear program, for the action of the IAEA Board of Governors, by 15 December 2015."

The signing of the agreement came on the same day that Tehran and the P5+1 countries – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany – finalized the text of an agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in Vienna.

The JCPOA turned into an international document after the UN Security Council on July 20 unanimously endorsed a resolution, under which the IAEA will continue to verify Iran’s compliance with its nuclear-related commitments under the agreement.
