Iran sticks to key limits of nuclear deal -U.N. watchdog

VIENNA, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Iran has stayed within key limits on its nuclear activities imposed by its 2015 deal with six world powers, a report by the U.N. atomic watchdog showed on Thursday.

The report was the third since the January inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has called the 2015 agreement between six major powers and Iran, reached under his predecessor Barack Obama, “the worst deal ever negotiated”.

Iran’s stock of low-enriched uranium as of Aug. 21 was 88.4 kg (194.89 pounds), well below a 202.8-kg limit, and the level of enrichment did not exceed a 3.67 percent cap, according to the confidential International Atomic Energy Agency report sent to IAEA member states and seen by Reuters.

Iran’s stock of so-called heavy water, a moderator used in a type of reactor that can produce plutonium, stood at 111 tonnes, below a 130 tonne limit agreed by the parties to the deal. (Reporting by Shadia Nasralla; editing by Mark Heinrich)
