IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano says that his Tehran trip aimed to accelerate the resolution of all outstanding issues.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) hopes to publish a report on the possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program by the end of the year, head of the UN nuclear watchdog Yukiya Amano told the press in Vienna on Saturday.
“With the cooperation from Iran, I think we can issue a report by the end of the year on the assessment of clarification of the issues related to the PMD. Once an agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA) is reached, the IAEA is ready to implement the nuclear-related element when requested, Amano said.
As for his latest trip to Tehran, Amano stressed that the visit was geared at accelerating the resolution of all outstanding issues.
He said, “Progress was made but more work was needed to detail cooperation between Iran and the IAEA.”
