Iran fulfills obligations of nuclear deal, IAEA confirms


Iran has taken the first steps to limit its nuclear programme under a deal with world powers, according to two Western diplomats who saw the International Atomic Energy Agency’s verification report.

The report is a requirement for the EU and the U.S. to suspend some of their sanctions against Iran later on Monday.

Iran has taken the actions that are required to start the so-called Geneva deal, including a halt to enriching uranium to higher levels and starting to blend down such higher-grade material, one of the diplomats said.
