The IAEA tweet was a reference to the revelations earlier this year by Israeli intelligence agencies about "Project Amad" - a covert nuclear program that the Iranian regime ran between 1999 and 2003.

The International Atomic Energy Agency will issue its latest quarterly assessment Monday.

The chancellor of the University of California, Los Angeles, expressed "fundamental disagreements" with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), but said.

He made the remark in a meeting with former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin at the venue of the Embassy of Iran in France on November 12 and urged European Union to abide by their commitments within the framework of JCPOA.

Monday's IAEA report, however, asserted that the agency had accessed all the sites in Iran that it needed to visit.

The report said that as of Nov 4, Iran's stockpiles of low-enriched uranium stood at 149.4kg, 10kg up from the time of its last report in August.

The IAEA detected no significant change in Iran's behavior after the United States withdrew from the JCPOA in May, or after strong USA sanctions went into effect on November 5.

"Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the additional protocol and enhances confidence", the report stated, referring to the procedure detailing safeguards and tools for verification.

However, the behavior of the US President Donald Trump not only has caused issues for Iran but also for European countries, while creating a bad situation in the global field, Larijani said. Iran's stock of heavy water, another material limited under the deal that was also within the cap set, was verified on November 3, the report showed.

Even before the sanctions went into effect this month, the Trump administration's announcement in May that it will pull out of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers triggered a collapse in the value of Iran's rial currency, which has hit 149,000 to the USA dollar on the black market, down from around 43,000 at the start of 2018.

Under the deal, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions.

The other members of the deal have stayed on in an attempt to try and make the pact work.
