The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that Amano's meetings "will focus on the IAEA's verification and monitoring of Iran's implementation" of the 2015 deal, which obliged Iran to cut back its controversial nuclear program, while world powers agreed to lift sanctions.

The United States has already imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a U.N. resolution, which calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

The visit comes as US President Donald Trump, in a major confrontational stance against Iran, refused to certify the multilateral deal on Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.

Many Israeli military and security experts have declared that the Iran nuclear deal has improved Israeli security.

Ali Akbar Salehi also made remarks over Iran's Nuclear Propulsion Program and appreciated the Iranian Parliament for allocating a budget to it, stating that though this program is a time consuming process, a technical team has been designated to execute it and technical infrastructure is being provided.

The European Union, Britain and other parties in the deal have all encouraged Trump to keep the accord in place.

If they can't, Trump said he will likely pull the US out of the deal and reinstate previously lifted USA sanctions on Iran's nuclear program, which could be a mortal blow to the agreement.

In a speech to parliament on Sunday, Rouhani also hit out at the USA, calling negotiations with Washington "madness".

Only last week the US House of Representatives voted on legislation that targets individuals, entities and other proxies, such as Hezbollah, involved with Iran's ballistic missile program.
