A November 11 agreement with the IAEA towards improved oversight over Iran's programme included six steps such as this week's visit by IAEA inspectors to the Gachin uranium mine and to a new reactor plant at Arak in December.Two years of talks between the IAEA and Iran over these accusations, detailed in a major and controversial IAEA report in November 2011 and consistently denied by Iran as being based on faulty intelligence, went nowhere.But Amano, 66, told AFP that Iran has not been let off the hook, saying that the November 24 accord with world powers made clear that "all past and present issues" must be resolved.Amano said that the IAEA would inform member states "without delay" if Iran began to veer away from its commitments in a "significant" way.
