Interim settlement reached with Iran / Day


As he told reporters after his return from the visit, a law passed by the Iranian parliament in December restricting IAEA inspections if sanctions imposed under former US President Donald Trump are not lifted will come into force on Tuesday, meaning inspectors’ access to Iran’s nuclear facilities will be reduced.

“The law exists, the law will come into force, and that means that the additional protocol will unfortunately be suspended,” Grosi explained, referring to one of the documents governing inspections under the IAEA-Iran agreement. “Access will be reduced, it must be taken into account. However, we have managed to maintain the necessary level of monitoring and inspections.”

Without specifying which of the IAEA’s activities will no longer be allowed, he said that the number of inspectors in Iran would not be reduced and that unannounced inspections would not be denied, but that the interim agreement could be reviewed or suspended at any time.

According to Grosi, this technical agreement can be seen as a good result that has helped to stabilize the situation so that “political discussions at other levels” can continue.

The IAEA chief met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran and the head of the Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Saleh.
