'Temporary Solution' found ahead of Iran deadline: UN Nuclear Chief
The head of the United Nations' nuclear watchdog team has said that Iran will begin offering less access to its nuclear program to UN inspectors as part of its pressure campaign in the West.
New Delhi: Iran has currently given limited permission to the United Nations team to inspect its nuclear facilities. The monitoring team here will not be able to take any photos at the moment. Here, Rafael Grossi, director general of the United Nations (UN) International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has said that his team can monitor the ongoing operations there, despite Iran's limited oversight permission.
UN on Nuclear Access in Iran:
Rafael arrived here with his team on Sunday. Their aim is to maintain technical understanding with Iran about monitoring the nuclear program. They want to maintain this understanding between Iran and the United Nations monitoring body for the next three months.
There are indications that there are signs that Iran has not softened its attitude even after the Biden administration announced that the United States would return to the nuclear deal with Iran. Huh. He is adamant on the demand for the lifting of the restrictions imposed on him earlier. That is why Iran is currently only allowed limited inspection by Rafael Grossi, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), who arrived in Tehran to inspect its nuclear installations.
Rafael Grossi has also met Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization here. Grossi said that at the ground level there has been no reduction in the number of his inspectors. Iran's Foreign Minister Muhammad Jawad Zarif has said that the IAEA team will not be allowed to take footage from the camera. He also said that it is not a final decision nor is it an ultimatum.
