The agency`s director general, Yukiya Amano, said the report concluded that until 2003, Iran had made “coordinated efforts” for “a series of activities” relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device. Iran continued some activities until 2009, but there was “no credible evidence” of weapons development, he added. 20 June 2017: The UN Secretary-General publishes the semi-annual report on UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which states that Iran respects the JCPOA but raises concerns about Iran`s ballistic missile activities. After the U.S. drone strike that killed Soleimani, a commander of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and several Tehran-backed Iraqi militia leaders, Iran announced that it would no longer limit its uranium enrichment but would not appoint IAEA inspectors in the country. France, Germany and the United Kingdom issued a joint statement calling on Iran to comply. Tehran said it remained open to negotiations with European partners. In Fordo, no enrichment will be allowed by 2031 and the underground facility will be transformed into a nuclear, physics and technology centre. The site`s 1,044 centrifuges will produce radioisotopes for medical, agricultural, industrial and scientific use. 16 July 2018: EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini confirmed at a press conference that the US has rejected a request from France, Germany, the Kingdom of the British Kingdom and the EU to exempt companies doing legitimate business with Iran from US sanctions. June 14, 2013: Hassan Rouhani is elected President of Iran. As a former nuclear negotiator, he says Iran will maintain its nuclear program, but proposes to be more transparent. 7-10 November 2013: P5-1 and Iran meet in Geneva to continue negotiations on Iran`s nuclear programme.
On 8 November, US Secretary of State John Kerry expects an agreement to be reached near Geneva to participate in the talks, as well as the foreign ministers of the other P5-1 countries. The parties are unable to reach agreement on a first-phase agreement, but announce that discussions will continue on 20 November in Geneva. April 8, 2009: After a review of iran policy by the new Obama administration, the United States announces that it will participate fully in the P5-1 talks with Iran, an abandonment of the previous administration`s policy that requires Iran to comply first with UN requirements. In November 2007, Iran admitted that the foreign mediator of its earlier statements was the illegal global network of Pakistani nuclear trafficking by Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan. Iran also admitted to purchasing in 1996 a complete set of Khan-2 P-2 centrifuge plans that it was using when it began building and testing P-2 centrifuges in 2002. However, Iran declined to answer the Agency`s outstanding questions regarding its UF4 (“The Green Salt Project”) processing activities, explosives testing and re-entry vehicle design.  The plan calls for the creation of a single Commission to monitor the agreement and cooperate with the IAEA.
The six-month period may be extended by mutual agreement between the two parties. December 1, 2016: Congress decides to extend the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) by 10 years, which will come into force on December 15. The extension of the ISA is in line with the commitments made by the United States under the JCPOA, although many of the PROVISIONS of the AIS are repealed as part of Washington`s commitments under the agreement. Iranian Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi says technicians have introduced the UF6 cascading of 20 IR-4 and 20 IR-6 centrifuges, surpassing the number of machines allowed to cascade through JCPOA`s research and development conditions at the time.
