The UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has stated that it needs an extra 1 million euros in funding so it can continue to monitor the Iranian regime nuclear program during the 4 month extension that was recently agreed to by the regime and the P5+1 world powers, Reuters reported.

The official request took the form of a note sent to the members of the IAEA on 24 July and has since been seen by Reuters, just six days after the negotiations were agreed to be extended. The note said that the organization would "continue to undertake the necessary nuclear-related monitoring and verification activities in Iran" under the accord.

This includes the continuation of monitoring of measures that the Iranian regime must do as a part of the accord, such as turn some of its higher-grade enriched uranium into fuel for a Tehran research reactor.

When detailing why the agency needed more money, it stated in the memo, "Continuation of the ... activities will require additional financial resources for the Agency."

Following the preliminary accord in November 2013, the work of the IAEA in Iran has increased to keep up with its new duties to monitor the regime’s nuclear proliferation.

It monitored the sites of Natanz and Fordow daily, as well as gave regular monthly reports to the members of the IAEA on Iran’s progress in implementation of the accord.

In January of this year, IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said that the organization was going to double its workers in Iran and needed 5.5 million euros to do its job following the November accord. It got this money without any problems, according to diplomats.
