France calls on Iran to cooperate with international nuclear watchdog

Reuters – French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday called on Iran to cooperate immediately and fully with international nuclear watchdog IAEA.

Macron was speaking after meeting IAEA chief Rafael Grossi and the organization issued a report admonishing Iran for failing to answer its questions about past nuclear activities at three sites and for denying it access to two of them.

“The President wants Iran to strictly fulfill its commitments and obligations in terms of verification and is calling on Tehran to immediately and fully cooperate with the Agency,” the Elysee palace statement said.
