VIENNA, September 7. /TASS/. The Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is gathering on Monday in the Austrian capital for a quarterly meeting in the Vienna office of the United Nations.
Despite issues connected with the security of nuclear facilities worldwide, 35 member countries of the Board will discuss the state of nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea, as well as measures to control them on the part of the agency.
Traditionally, a separate report by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano will be dedicated to implementation by Iran of its commitments — both to the agency and the six international negotiators on its nuclear program.
On July 14, a deal was agreed between Iran and the six negotiators (P5+1), that is to guarantee the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the West and the United Nations giving up sanctions.
The P5+1 is the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France — plus Germany.
Iran says it needs nuclear power to generate electricity, but Western powers led by the United States claimed Tehran's eventual aim is to create nuclear weapons.
