The chief of the United Nations atomic agency on Monday said that Iran has complied with a key commitment of its nuclear deal with six world powers by removing sensitive equipment from a underground Uranium enrichment site.
Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency said on Monday that Iran has met a deadline and taken “excess centrifuges and infrastructure” from the Fordow uranium enrichment site, ABC News reported.
The main focus of the nuclear deal is limiting Iran’s uranium-enrichment capacities out of fear Tehran could spin uranium in its centrifuges all the way to levels used for the core of a nuclear weapon. Iran says it is not interested in such arms, AP reported.
The nuclear deal, signed between Iran and six world powers, permitted more than 1,000 centrifuges to be remained at Fordow uranium enrichment site. According to the deal, they must be used for research and other non-enrichment purposes
