The United Nations Nuclear Security Guard declared Thursday that Iran continues to respect the terms of a 2015 nuclear pact, despite the withdrawal of the United States Agreement and Renewed Sanctions That Contributed to Economic Crisis
The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed to Teheran that, in addition to other provisions, it will comply with uranium and uranium enrichment restrictions, according to a confidential IAEA report was audited on Thursday by Associated Press and Reuters. It is the twelfth report in a row that confirms Iran's accession to the agreement, formally rejected by President Trump in May, by withdrawing from it and reintroducing sanctions on Tehran.

The historic collapse of These Rials has resulted in prices for everything from food to air travel increasing and leading to drug shortages, which has increased pressure on President Hassan Rouhani's government.

But both Iran and European nations have signaled that compliance with conditions as they are is unlikely.
