Vienna, Iran has provided the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with documents to clarify the controversial issues regarding its nuclear program, the UN nuclear watchdog said.
“Iran today provided the IAEA with its explanation in writing and related documents as agreed in the road-map for the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program,” Tass news agency quoted the IAEA as saying on Saturday.

The road-map is a part of the deal between Iran and six world powers (five permanent UN security council members and Germany) reached on July 14 in Vienna, Austria.

IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said earlier that with the cooperation of Tehran, the watchdog could make an assessment of issues relating to possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear program by the end of 2015.

This road-map envisages that international experts will be able to hold consultations with technical experts of Iran’s nuclear sector and also get one access to the military facility in Parchin.

In July, the UN security council has unanimously adopted the resolution in support of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme.

According to the document, all international sanctions will be lifted from Iran in 10 years if Tehran fulfills all conditions agreed with P5+1 group of international mediators in Vienna.

The resolution also envisages easing sanctions against Iran after the IAEA submits a report confirming Tehran’s compliance with the terms of the deal.

The UN security council also reinforced the mechanism of returning all restrictions in case Iran violates the terms of the agreement.

Facebook Removes Pages, Fake Accounts Linked to Iran

Facebook has removed 82 Pages, Groups and accounts for what it calls “coordinated inauthentic behaviour” that originated in Iran and targeted people in the US and Britain.

“While we have found no ties to the Iranian government, we can’t say for sure who is responsible,” Nathaniel Gleicher, Head of Cybersecurity Policy at Facebook said in a statement on Friday.

The people behind these Pages and accounts represented themselves as US citizens, or in a few cases UK citizens — and they posted about politically charged topics such as race relations, opposition to the US President, and immigration on Facebook and Instagram.

Facebook said its threat intelligence team first detected this activity one week ago and conducted an internal investigation.

“Despite attempts to hide their true identities, a manual review of these accounts linked their activity to Iran,” Gleicher said.

The activities on Facebook were revealed just weeks before the midterm election in the US and while a heated Brexit debate continues in Britain.

“Given the elections, we took action as soon as we’d completed our initial investigation and shared the information with US and UK government officials, US law enforcement, Congress, other technology companies and the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab,” Gleicher said.

This is not the first time Facebook has removed Pages and accounts linked to Iran. In August, the social network removed 600 Pages and accounts originating from Russia and Iran for engaging in “inauthentic behaviour”. (IANS)
