IAEA says Iran uranium stockpile reduced, but questions remain

Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium gas dropped below the maximum level required under a 2013 interim nuclear agreement with world powers, a UN report showed, but a US think-tank suggested Tehran had not entirely met its obligations.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in its monthly report on Iran, a confidential document seen by Reuters on Wednesday,

that Iran’s stockpile of uranium gas enriched up to a fissile purity of 5 percent was at 7,537 kg at end-June – below a roughly 7,650 kg ceiling stipulated in the November 2013 interim nuclear deal with six world powers. A US-based think-tank, however, issued an analysis of the IAEA report that questioned whether Iran had indeed complied with the requirement to convert its low enriched uranium (LEU) to a form with less risk of proliferation, uranium dioxide.
