Tehran - The head of the UN nuclear watchdog is visiting Iran for the second time since a landmark nuclear agreement with world powers went into effect at the start of this year.

Yukiya Amano, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, on Sunday urged all sides to adhere to the agreement.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would abide by the deal if other nations do, and said IAEA reports should be "technical and impartial". 

The IAEA said last month that Iran exceeded its heavy water limit by 100kg over the 130 tons allowed under the agreement. Heavy water is used to cool reactors that produce plutonium, which can be used in atomic bombs.

Iran later said it transferred 11 tons of heavy water to Oman.
