WASHINGTON, November 10. /TASS/. Although Iran has exceeded its limit on heavy water, the United States does not see it as a violation of the nuclear agreement, US Department of State spokesman Mark Toner said.

"The IAEA has identified where they have gone over the limit. Iran has owned up to that. They’ve not made any effort to hide that. And they are taking immediate steps to address it," he told reporters late on Thursday.

"That, to us, shows that the agreement’s working," he continued. "That’s what the agreement is set up to do, that we have - we collectively have eyes on what Iran is doing with regard to its nuclear program that we can address these problems as they arise."

Earlier reports said Tehran has exceeded the 130 metric ton threshold for heavy water set under the 2015 nuclear deal with major world powers.
