UN nuclear chief: Iran must honor deal ‘for many years’

VIENNA – The head of the UN nuclear agency suggests that Iran’s initial compliance with an atomic deal is only a first step, saying Tehran must continue to honor its commitments in the years ahead.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano spoke Monday at the opening of the organization’s 35-nation board meeting. The IAEA is monitoring Iran’s compliance with a nuclear deal with six world powers implemented in December. In its first report last month, it noted that Iran was in — or quickly got into — line with its obligations. But with the agreement extending to more than a decade, Amano says Iran “has to implement its commitments … for many years to come.” Iran agreed to crimp its nuclear programs in return for sanctions relief under the deal.
