IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Vienna, Jan 19, IRNA -- IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano on Tuesday thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran, G5+1 and IAEA Board of Governors for the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Following talks with Iranian officials, Amano said that IAEA is currently mulling to establish a bureau to monitor observing IAEA Safeguards Agreement and sound implementation of the JCPOA.

IAEA inspectors on the ground verified that Iran has carried out all measures required under the JCPOA for the Implementation Day, Amano said.

On establishment of the IAEA bureau in Tehran, he said IAEA is to carry out new round of works based on the JCPOA and UNSC resolutions.

IAEA is expected to verify and monitor Iran's nuclear-related commitments under the agreement, as requested by the UN Security Council and authorized by the IAEA Board of Governors, Amano said.

IAEA has gone a long way from the beginning of the year 2003 and has made extensive efforts, he said adding that IAEA is to do its utmost to carry out mission based on the JCPOA.

Iran is expected to respect commitments to its pledges with regards to clause 3.1 of the IAEA Safeguards Agreement, he said.

In line with its commitments, Iran will provisionally implement the Additional Protocol to Non-Proliferation Treaty. Together with other nuclear-related measures under the JCPOA, this increases the Agency's ability to monitor Iranian nuclear activities and to verify that they are peaceful, Amano said.

Iranian officials have underlined that after implementation of the JCPOA, they will remain committed to their pledges, he said.
