Iran says some sanctions under nuclear deal still in place

VIENNA -- The head of Iran's atomic energy organization is asserting that Tehran remains under some sanctions that were supposed to be removed through a landmark nuclear agreement with six world powers.


Ali Akbar Salehi says his country is honoring all its commitments but that "comprehensive and expeditious removal of all sanctions" outlined in the agreement "have yet to be met."


Salehi did not blame specific countries in his comments Monday to the International Atomic Energy Agency's general conference, however other Iranian officials have faulted the United States for perceived foot-dragging in lifting financial sanctions.
