Rouhani's vow to push ahead came after the US House of Representatives voted in favor of legislation last week that would hit individuals and entities assisting Iran's missile development with fresh sanctions. "The IAEA believes that the JCPOA is a significant gain for verification", he added.

The U.S. Congress now has fewer than 60 days to decide whether to reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran that were lifted under the deal. So far the agency has released eight reports each time confirming Iran's adherence to the worldwide nuclear pact.
