Iran follows the nuclear deal: U.N.

Iran follows the nuclear deal: U.N.Iran has kept to a nuclear deal it agreed with six world powers last year limiting its stockpiles of substances that could be used to make atomic weapons, Reuters reported on Friday, citing the U.N. nuclear agency’s report.

The news agency is citing the confidential report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It did not point to any violations in Tehran's observance of the deal which was opposed by hardliners inside Iran and by skeptics in the West.

"Throughout the reporting period, Iran had no more than 130 metric tonnes of heavy water ... Iran's total enriched uranium (up to 3.67 percent purity) stockpile did not exceed 300 kg," the report said, citing the nuclear deal's limits on the two substances.

Iran has also given fresh documents to the IAEA, it said, to move toward further normalization of its status under the so-called Additional Protocol, the agency's monitoring procedure which all member states are supposed to adhere to.

Under last year's nuclear deal, Iran is allowed to conduct certain atomic research and development activities beyond uranium enrichment with its elderly IR-1 centrifuges. Thursday's report mentioned Iran has resumed making rotor tubes for advanced models.
