UN agency to release report showing status of Iranian compliance to nuclear deal

The U.N. nuclear agency is set to release a report on whether Iran is meeting its commitments to a deal that is meant to reduce Tehran's ability to make atomic arms.

The report, expected Wednesday, may show little progress, however. Iran has said it is holding back on implementing the agreement until next month's publication of another report by the U.N's International Atomic Energy Agency detailing its conclusions on allegations Tehran worked in the past on nuclear arms.

Iran denies the allegations and has described an IAEA list of suspected instances of such activity as based on doctored Western intelligence.

Iran agreed in July to reduce nuclear programs that could be used to make weapons in exchange for sanctions relief.
