TASS– Israel has invited a group of Russian experts to familiarize themselves with documents on the Iranian nuclear program presented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, a source in Jerusalem’s authorities told TASS.
“The Russian groups have been invited [to study the materials],” the source said. “At the moment there is no particular information whether they are coming or where this will take place.”
The experts may study the documents either in Russia or in Israel, the source added.
On Monday, Netanyahu accused Iran of concealing its nuclear weapons program and archives, expressing confidence that the Iranian nuclear deal was based on Tehran’s lies. The PM also provided Israeli intelligence data with 100,000 files allegedly proving that the Iranians were lying about the nuclear program designed for military use.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the deal on Iran’s nuclear program, was signed between Iran and six international mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.
On January 16, 2016, the parties to the deal announced beginning of its implementation. Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange of abandonment of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.
