#AceWorldNews – Iran is meeting the international demands placed on it during a nuclear pact made with six world powers two months ago, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
However, in order to fully fulfil the six-month deal, Iran is required to complete a nuclear conversion facility, a report from the UN body stated on Thursday.
The utility in question is designed to hold down the uranium gas stockpile.
However, the matter is of minimal concern, according to the IAEA, as Iran’s commitment concerns the size of the stockpile towards the end of the deal, in late July.
#AceWorldNews say that a nuclear deal between Iran and the 5+1 world powers is being implemented as planned, the UN’s nuclear chief said Monday. Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, added that much remains to be done to resolve all issues regarding Tehran’s atomic activities, Reuters reported.
The IAEA remains $2.21 million short of the funds it needed for its extra work in verifying that Iran is living up to its part of the six-month-accord reached in November.

The development could significantly impact upcoming negotiations in Vienna – due to start February 18 – between Iran and the six world powers.
Iran had earlier promised to clear up “any ambiguities” regarding its uranium enrichment program.
On Saturday, Iran resumed talks with the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In line with the framework, Iran is expected to take six practical measures by this Tuesday – including an additional IAEA visit to an unfinished heavy-water reactor at Arak and another inspection of Gachin Mine in Bandar Abbas Port in southern Iran.

Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have agreed one seven more concrete measures regarding the country’s nuclear program which will be taken by May 15, the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reports.
Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for the nuclear watchdog, said that inspection of Parchin nuclear site is not among the seven measures agreed by Iran and the IAEA. Iran’s envoy to the IAEA Reza Najafi said details of the measures will be released soon.
The agreement comes one day after the IAEA arrived in Tehran to build on a framework agreed upon by Iran and global powers in November. The first three-month period of cooperation between Iran and the agency ends on Sunday.
#AceWorldNews says `IAEA Inspectors‘ Visit `Iranian Uranium Mine‘
UN nuclear inspectors visited an Iranian uranium mine for the first time in nearly a decade Wednesday, media in Tehran reported. A three-member team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) went to the Gchine mine near the southern Gulf port of Bandar Abbas, Reuters quoted a spokesman for Iran’s atomic energy organization as saying.
The IAEA last visited the facility in 2005. Allowing the IAEA to go to Gchine was among six steps Iran agreed to under a November 11 cooperation agreement with the UN nuclear watchdog.

#AceWorldNews says a team of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived in Tehran to facilitate implementation towards the landmark deal reached between Iran and the six world powers regarding the country’s uranium enrichment program, Reuters reports, citing the semi-official Fars news agency. The IAEA team, led by nuclear engineer Massimo Aparo, will visit the Natanz and Fordow nuclear facilities to ensure that Iran will stop enriching uranium to 20 percent and that its stockpile of enriched uranium is diluted. Under the terms of the agreement with the P5+1 – the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany – Iran will curtail its nuclear program in return from relief from international sanctions. The team is expected to start reporting back to the IAEA on Monday regarding its progress.
#AceWorldNews says The UN nuclear agency said Friday it would cost it about 6 million euro ($8.2 million) to verify the implementation of a landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers. A confidential report to member states, obtained by Reuters, said that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) needed extra money from member states to pay for most of it. The IAEA will play a pivotal role in checking that Iran lives up to its commitment to curb disputed nuclear work, in exchange for easing international sanctions.
#AceWorldNews says UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Tuesday that a planned meeting with Iran next week had been postponed to February 8, without giving a reason, Reuters reported. The IAEA wants Iran to address allegations that it has researched how to develop nuclear bombs. Tehran says the nuclear program is entirely peaceful. In November, Iran and the IAEA agreed a cooperation pact, and six initial steps include access to two nuclear-related facilities and the provision of information.
