IAEA Meeting on Iran’s Breaches

By Edward Carney

On Wednesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 35-member Board of Governors met in Vienna to discuss prospective responses to the recent and forthcoming violations of the Iran nuclear deal. At the beginning of July, Iranian officials announced that they had officially surpassed the limits imposed on stockpiles of nuclear material. Days later, they also reported having begun enrichment of uranium to levels higher than the 3.67 percent fissile purity that was identified as the maximum allowed under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The IAEA confirmed both of these breaches, after having previously issued 15 separate reports indicating that the Islamic Republic had been complying with its primary obligations under the deal since it was implemented at the beginning of 2016.
