Iran has submitted documents linked to its past nuclear activity, the UN’s atomic watchdog has confirmed, a key condition of a probe into suspected efforts to create nuclear arms.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran had met a key deadline by handing over the papers on Saturday.
“Iran… provided the IAEA with its explanation in writing and related documents as agreed in the roadmap for the clarification of past
and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program,” the agency said in a brief statement published Saturday.
A senior Iranian official also confirmed that the documents had been submitted. “We have achieved our commitments as part of the deadline set out in the agreement,” said Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
