The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran has exceeded its enriched uranium stockpile limit by more than 16 times. The limit was agreed as part of the 2015 nuclear deal, AFP reported citing the organisation’s report.
The quarterly report detailing Iran’s nuclear programme showed on Monday that Tehran has failed to explain to the UN’s watchdog why traces of processed uranium were discovered in the country.
“After many months, Iran has not provided the necessary explanation for the presence of the nuclear material particles at any of the three locations where the Agency has conducted complementary accesses (inspections),” IAEA chief Rafael Grossi was quoted as saying in the report.
