Iran: Nuclear Power

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 2010, tabled on 10 June 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of Iran's level of co-operation with International Atomic Energy Agency investigations into its current and previous nuclear activities.

Answered on

16 June 2015

We and other members of the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) receive quarterly reports on Iran's nuclear programme, the IAEA's efforts to address the Possible Military Dimensions of Iran’s nuclear programme, and the nuclear aspects of the Joint Plan of Action with the E3+3.

The IAEA Director General issued his latest report on the status of Iran’s nuclear programme on 29 May 2015; this confirms Iran continues to implement its commitments under the Joint Plan of Action. However, we remain disappointed by Iran’s limited engagement with the IAEA on Possible Military Dimensions.
