Iran allows IAEA to use cameras at nuclear sites

TEHRAN (Agencies): The head of the International Atomic Energy Organi-zation (IAEA) Rafael Grossi will visit Tehran for consultations with the Iranian government on issues related to the nuclear deal, reports RIA Novosti.

In a joint press conference after the meeting with IAEA chief Rafael Grossi on Sunday in Tehran, Eslami said that Grossi came to Iran at the invitation of the AEOI and that the two sides had a constructive dialog.

Noting that the issues discussed were all of technical nature as political issues have nothing to do with AEOI-IAEA cooperation, Eslami added that the two sides agreed that Iran would attend the next IAEA BoG meeting and continue current negotiations on the sidelines.

He also said that they agreed that Grossi has two other trips to Tehran to remove memory cards of the cameras installed in Iran’s nuclear facilities and seal them to be maintained in Iran and insert new memory cards.

He emphasized that the mutual confidence between Iran and the IAEA should remain intact and the agency should have a significant role in carrying out its legal tasks in advancing Iran’s nuclear energy.

“The IAEA Director General will also visit Tehran in the near future to hold high-level consultations with the Iranian government in order to expand cooperation between Iran and the IAEA in various fields and discuss current issues of mutual interest,” the joint statement said.

In particular, it is known that the inspectors of the international agency are again allowed to use surveillance cameras from Iranian nuclear facilities.
