Work on nuclear propulsion system started, Iran says

Amano visited Tehran on Sunday.

Yukiya Amano, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, avoided speaking about Iran in his address at the conference.

Organised by the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, in cooperation with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's Nuclear Energy Agency, OECD NEA, the conference, which convenes every four years, is hosted by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and will discuss trends, challenges and opportunities in developing peaceful nuclear energy.

The three-day global ministerial conference sponsored by the IAEA started in Abu Dhabi is to discuss the role of nuclear energy in the 21st century. He said, "The IAEA can state that such nuclear-related commitments are being implemented".

"The IAEA can state that the nuclear-related commitments made by Iran under the JCPOA are being implemented", Amano noted, adding that IAEA monitoring would continue to be conducted "in an impartial and objective and stringent manner".

Amano gave a ringing endorsement to Iran's compliance with the deal during his meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Al Jazeera describes Amano's latest "verification of compliance" as "a moment of vindication for Iran and another global rebuke of the White House".

It came as US President Donald Trump lambasted the Iran deal.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a conference on nuclear power, a day after holding talks in Tehran with Iranian officials on the landmark nuclear deal the Islamic republic struck with world powers.

The administration's apparent position is also out of step with the American public's.
