The chief inspector of the global atomic energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran's nuclear capabilities Tero Varjoranta resigned.

To the question about the reasons of resignation of Vardgaranti the representative of the Agency told about the confidentiality of this information and that the IAEA does not comment on its staffing issues.

Tero Varjoranta was responsible for the Iran nuclear deal program since 2013, the watchdog said in a statement, without giving a reason for the resignation.

The Vienna-based nuclear agency says it has no indications Iran is in breach of the accord, the report concluded.

"Mr. Tero Varjoranta stepped down starting from May 11, 2018", the spokesperson of IAEA was quoted as saying by the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper.

"The United States will continue to support robust implementation of IAEA inspections in Iran to the full extent of the IAEA's authority", an official at the U.S. mission to the IAEA in Vienna told dpa.

The United States covers about a quarter of the regular budget and has volunteered an additional $US3 million for Iran inspections since 2015, the USA official said.

He described the three-year-old agreement as "a significant verification gain" adding that "as of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran".

The Trump administration faced worldwide criticism this week for its decision to exit the agreement, while Iran has stated it will attempt to negotiate the continuation of the deal among the remaining global signatories. You can sign up to receive it directly here.
