Since Hassan Rouhani became president, Iran has stopped expanding its uranium enrichment capacity, a UN inspection report showed on Thursday, in a potential boost for diplomacy to end Teheran's nuclear dispute with the West.

The quarterly report by the International Atomic Energy Agency also said that since August no further major components had been added to a potential plutonium-producing reactor that worries the US and its allies.

It was issued the same week that Iran agreed to give IAEA inspectors access to two nuclear-related facilities as part of a cooperation pact to resolve outstanding issues, including suspicions of nuclear bomb research by Teheran.
