The International Atomic Energy Agency has approved the framework for Iran to be allowed to develop its nuclear programme under the terms of the nuclear deal struck with world powers.
The IAEA announced the final document late on Wednesday night.
Iran was not permitted to develop a nuclear weapon under the deal, which will take effect next year.
The final document on Iran’s nuclear programme is the culmination of a three-year process, in which IAEAs, the U.N. and other countries negotiated with Iran and the Islamic Republic of Iran to implement the landmark deal that went into effect in July.
Under the deal Iran agreed to lift all international sanctions against it and allow the IAEB to inspect sites and facilities.
Iran was given the chance to implement its agreement to allow for inspections in a number of countries, but it has so far not complied.
Its last inspection in the U of A campus in October 2013 was of the enrichment site at Fordow.
In September 2016, IAEAS inspectors confirmed that the Fordow facility, which is located about 10 km (6 miles) from the disputed Bushehr nuclear power plant, is not in a state of active enrichment, a violation of the terms in the nuclear agreement.
Iran has denied any wrongdoing.
Since then, I am confident that the IAF will continue to inspect Iranian facilities in line with the agreement and will verify that Iran is in compliance with its commitments under the agreement.
While IAEas inspectors were in Iran in October, they also visited two other sites and conducted several investigations, including an inspection of the Busheh reactor.
As part of the deal to implement it, Iran agreed that IAEI inspectors would be allowed access to all Iranian facilities, including the Fordows.
IAEA inspectors visited Fordow in October 2015 and November 2016.
