Yukiya Amano, 72, that oversaw Iran controversial nuclear program, passed away.

“While I am convinced that the IAEA as an institution will be able to continue its work dedicated to nuclear non-proliferation, the loss of a personality like Yukiya Amano, who had embodied this dedication, will add to an already highly delicate and complex situation with regards to the nuclear agreement with Iran,” Adnan Tabatabai, an expert with the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient in Germany, told The Associated Press.
