The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Monday that Iran had enriched uranium with a purity that exceeded the limit set by the world’s three-year nuclear deal with the world powers of 3.67 percent, which confirms the action announced by the Iranian government before.

“IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano told the board of governors that IAEA inspectors were investigating on July 8 that Iran was enriching higher than 3.67 percent,” said a spokesman for the IAEA, which oversees the agreement.
