The head of the UN atomic agency said in Abu Dhabi on Sunday IAEA inspectors are doing their work in Iran "without problem", a day after Tehran was implementing its nuclear commitments.

An IAEA report released last month had also affirmed Iran's compliance with the programme, which froze some of Tehran's nuclear activities.
It came as US President Donald Trump lambasted the Iran deal.

Amano said in September IAEA inspections verifying Iran's side of the deal are the world's toughest.
