VIENNA (Sputnik) — The Iranian authorities are fulfilling all obligations they have undertaken within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA),  Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano said Friday.

"As I have reported to the Board of Governors, the nuclear-related commitments undertaken by Iran under the JCPOA are being implemented," Amano said in a statement in regard to Trump's announcement. Amano stressed that "Iran is subject to the world’s most robust nuclear verification regime."

"The IAEA’s verification and monitoring activities address all the nuclear-related elements under the JCPOA. They are undertaken in an impartial and objective manner and in accordance with the modalities defined by the JCPOA and standard safeguards practice," the IAEA chief said.

Meantime, the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini also stressed on Friday that Tehran has not violated any obligations under the Iranian nuclear agreement.

"The IAEA has verified eight times that Iran is implementing all its nuclear-related commitments following a comprehensive and strict monitoring system. There have been no violations of any of the commitments included in the agreement," Mogherini told reporters.

The top EU diplomat added that the international community and the 28-nation bloc, as part of it, had indicated that the deal was implemented and would continue to be implemented in the future.

Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump presented a new US strategy on Iran and announced that his administration is determined not to recertify that Iran is in compliance with the JCPOA.

In July 2015, Iran signed the JCPOA with the P5+1 group of nations, a group comprised of the five permenant members of the UN Security Council — China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States — plus Germany. The nuclear deal came into force in January 2016, and provides for the gradual lifting of economic and diplomatic sanctions imposed on Tehran by Western countries in exchange for closing Iran's nuclear program.
