IAEA nuclear inspector Tero Varjoranta steps down after U.S. quits Iran deal

IAEA nuclear inspector Tero Varjoranta steps down after U.S. quits Iran deal

The chief of inspections at the United Nations nuclear watchdog has resigned suddenly, the agency said on Friday without giving a reason.

"The IAEA is closely following developments related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)".

Trump withdrew the U.S. from the accord Tuesday, despite warnings from Germany, France and Russian Federation - all signatories - that his action could further destabilize the Middle East.

"Iran is subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime", Director General Yukiya Amano said.

"I am proud to have played a small part in this work, particularly the extraordinary achievement of implementing the [deal] with Iran, which has clearly been successful in preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon", Johnson said in an email to colleagues.

Leaving Iran deal, USA leaves leadership behind
Despite the complications Trump created with worldwide partners on Iran, the USA president did put Tehran on notice, Barak said. However, proponents of the deal have said those time limits were meant to encourage more discussion with Iran in the future.

The White House warned European firms they had a six-month deadline to wind up investments in Iran or risk U.S. sanctions.

The transfer comes simply days after U.S. President Donald Trump introduced the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord created to maintain Tehran's atomic weapons program in examine. The US president added that another deal should be signed with Iran.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that Tehran is ready to soon begin uranium enrichment on an industrial scale.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the deal on Iran's nuclear program, was signed between Iran and six global mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.

The accord signed by Iran and major powers in 2015 imposed strict limits on Iran's atomic activities to help ensure they are not put to developing nuclear bombs in exchange for the lifting of global sanctions against Tehran.
