UN watchdog chief: Sanctions have not slowed Iran’s nuclear progress

Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said Monday that Iran is making steady progress in expanding its nuclear program – despite international sanctions that do not seem to be slowing it down. He spoke to Reuters shortly after Iran’s president-elect Hassan Rouhani said his country would not suspend its enrichment of uranium, but would be more transparent about its nuclear program for the sake of seeing sanctions lifted. Amano said he remained committed to dialogue with Iran although no meeting had been set after 10 rounds of talks since early 2012.
