IAEA’s Amano Arrives in Tehran to Discuss Nuclear Roadmap

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano arrived in Tehran on Sunday morning to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on the implementation of a roadmap for Iran's civilian nuclear program.

In his one-day visit, Amano is accompanied by a four-member delegation, including his deputies.

The IAEA chief is scheduled to meet and confer with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Ali Akbar Salehi.

AEOI's spokesman, Behrouz Kamalvandi, said on Saturday that Amano’s visit is intended to pave the way for the “implementation” of a roadmap signed by Iran and the IAEA on July 14, IRNA reported.

On July 14, Iran and the IAEA signed a roadmap regarding the Islamic Republic’s nuclear work in the Austrian capital city of Vienna.

The agreement was reached on the same day Iran and the P5+1 finalized the text of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Vienna.

As part of the roadmap, the IAEA is required to finish its investigations on Iran’s nuclear activities and submit a report to the agency’s Board of Governors by December 15.

Earlier on Saturday, the IAEA announced that Amano will discuss issues related to Iran’s nuclear program during his stay in Tehran.

Tehran says it has provided the necessary documents and explanations about its past and present nuclear issues to the IAEA within the agreed time frame.
