Head of IAEA inspections has resigned

Donald Trump: Latest News, Videos and Photos | Times of India

The United Nation's top nuclear inspector has abruptly resigned amid a renewed focus on the agency's work with Iran and its nuclear program.

The United States will not stop funding intense International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections in Iran, despite its pull-out from the nuclear deal with Tehran, a USA official says.

The Vienna-based nuclear company says it has no indications Iran is in breach of the accord.

The reason for the resignation of the expert, the representative of the IAEA did not name.

The Director General appointed Massimo Aparo Acting Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards on 11 May 2018.

The Trump administration faced worldwide criticism this week for its decision to exit the agreement, while Iran has stated it will attempt to negotiate the continuation of the deal among the remaining global signatories.

In a live televised address, he did not claim that Iran was in violation of the terms of the deal, but described its so-called "sunset provisions" - which lift restrictions on the country's ability to enrich uranium within 10 to 15 years - as "totally unacceptable".

The deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), required Iran to open any site to the IAEA within 24 days at most.

Trump has pulled out of the 2015 pact and reinstated U.S. sanctions because he does not believe that the agreement prevents Iran from getting atomic weapons.

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