Amano: Iran, IAEA Signed Nuclear Roadmap
Yukiya Amano, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, made the comments in Vienna on Tuesday, just a short time after diplomats acknowledged a sum-up agreement had been made between world powers and Iran.
Amano said Iranian Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi signed the roadmap. It calls for his agency, with Iran’s cooperation, to make an assessment of issues relating to what is called as possible military dimensions of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program by the end of 2015.
“This is a significant step forward toward clarifying outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program,” Amano said.
His remarks came as Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) are about to declare a sum-up of years of talks in the next hour.
