It said the Additional Protocol, a voluntary agreement that grants the IAEA expanded rights of access such as to information and unannounced access of nuclear facilities, is pending ratification by the Iranian parliament.


The statement comes on the so-called Adoption Day of the JCPOA nuclear deal, 90 days after it was endorsed by the UN Security Council.

The JCPOA, agreed upon by Tehran and the P5+1 group in Vienna on July 14 after nearly two years hard negotiations, sets out limits to Iranian nuclear activities in exchange for a lifting of imposed sanctions.

The IAEA Thursday announced the completion of activities set out in the “Road-map” deal between the nuclear watchdog and Iran on July 14 to clarify “past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program.”

Amano will release a final assessment on the resolution of “all past and present outstanding issues” by Dec. 15, the IAEA said.

According to JCPOA, from the beginning of the Adoption Day,”JCPOA participants will make necessary arrangements and preparations for the implementation of their JCPOA commitments.”

On the Implementation Day, which many believe could be more than two months later, simultaneously with the IAEA report verifying implementation by Iran of the nuclear-related measures, the EU is expected to “terminate” all nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions, while the United States will “cease the application” of most of the nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions.
