VIENNA, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will need an additional €1 million ($1.3 million) to continue the effort to control Tehran’s nuclear program, the director general of the UN nuclear watchdog said Monday.
“The agency continues to undertake monitoring and verification in relation to the measures set out in the Joint Plan of Action agreed between the E3+3 and Iran, which has been extended. Continuation of our activities will require additional funding of one million euros, of which around 300 000 euros have so far been pledged. I invite member-states which wish to do so to make contributions,” Yukiya Amano said in a statement.
In January, the agency said it needed €6 million over six months to fund the effort to verify the landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers. The IAEA said it would hire more inspectors to check Iran’s nuclear facilities.
The negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) group, which were expected to be concluded on July 20, will continue until November 24.
The interim nuclear deal reached on November 24, 2013, called for taking the first step of reciprocal actions to prove good faith in a six-month period to be followed by talks for a comprehensive agreement, according to which the West will acknowledge the Iranian nuclear program as civilian.
The deal was to be followed by a comprehensive agreement, which should alleviate the international community’s concerns about the Iranian nuclear program and lift economic sanctions that hamper Iran’s economic development.
