ISTANBUL — The U.N. watchdog tasked with monitoring Iran’s nuclear activities certified Thursday that the country remains in compliance with a 2015 accord struck with world powers, even as the Trump administration has threatened to withdraw from the deal.
In its quarterly report to member states, the International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran’s stock of low-enriched uranium, which is used for peaceful purposes, is in line with the nuclear pact, as is the number of centrifuges used for enrichment.
The report, which is confidential but was seen by multiple news agencies, also stated that Iran has “not pursued the construction”of its heavy-water reactor at Arak, which would give it the capability to produce weapons-grade plutonium.
