Donald Trump: Latest News, Videos and Photos | Times of India

No reason was given for Tero Varjoranta's sudden departure, which comes days after US President Donald Trump took the US out of the deal between Iran and world powers over its nuclear programme.

Tero Varjoranta, the chief of inspections at the United Nations nuclear watchdog has resigned suddenly, just days after US President Donald Trump quit the Iran accord.

The U.S. has repeatedly accused Iran of violating the spirit of the agreement secured in 2015 under the Obama administration, but the IAEA says it has no indications Iran has breached the agreement, the AP reported.

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.

"Mr Tero Varjoranta has resigned effective 11 May 2018", the IAEA announced.

USA officials have said that despite the US' withdrawal from the Iran accord, they want the IAEA's inspections in Iran to continue.

The IAEA conducts inspections in Iran to verify compliance with the terms of the deal.

Trump withdrew the USA from the accord Tuesday, despite warnings from Germany, France and Russian Federation - all signatories - that his action could further destabilize the Middle East.

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".
