Amano is slated to arrive in Tehran on Saturday and hold
talks with high-ranking Iranian officials on Sunday about a range of issues,
including the implementation of 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the Joint
Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The head of the UN nuclear watchdog plans to meet Head of
the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi among others.
The visit would come as US President Donald Trump, in a major
confrontational stance against Iran, refused to certify the multilateral deal
on Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.
Speaking from the White House on October 13, Trump said he
will choose not to certify that Tehran is complying with the agreement.
Since the historic deal was signed in Vienna, the IAEA has
repeatedly confirmed the Islamic Republic’s compliance with its commitments
under the JCPOA, but some other parties, especially the US, have failed to live
up to their undertakings.
