Tehran Will Produce Any Weapon Needed to Defend Iran - Rouhani

Iran to Produce 20% Enriched Uranium in 4 Days Salehi

Rahimpour said the talks between Putin and Iranian officials will also tackle the Syrian conflict and planned talks between Syrian rivals at the Kazakh capital, Astana.

According to Salehi, Amano will discuss serious issues with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani during his scheduled meeting.

Earlier this month, U.S. President Donald Trump refused to formally certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear accord.

"We hope that, given the full cooperation of Iran in recent years, the IAEA announces the final report on the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program as soon as possible", Rouhani said.

Rouhani spoke days after the US House of Representatives voted for new sanctions against Iran's ballistic missile program, part of an effort to clamp down on Tehran without immediately moving to undermine an worldwide nuclear agreement.

The United States has already imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a UN resolution, which calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

Amano added that he had told Iranian officials the nuclear deal was a "significant gain for verification".

Iran struck the deal with world powers in 2015. However, Trump punted the issue to Congress, instructing lawmakers to toughen the law that governs US participation in the deal and calling on the other parties to the accord to fix a series of deficiencies.

Mr Rouhani spoke days after the US House of Representatives voted for new sanctions on Iran's ballistic missile programme, part of an effort to clamp down on Tehran without immediately moving to undermine an global nuclear agreement.

"We have built, are building and will continue to build missiles, and this violates no global agreements", Rouhani was quoted by State TV, as saying.
