Iran-IAEA consensus to reopen diplomatic avenue

The recent consensus between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Islamic Republic of Iran following two years of disagreement indicates that the West is determined to pave the way for the reopening of diplomatic path and resume meaningful nuclear negotiations.

IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, heading a diplomatic delegation, arrived in Tehran on Saturday night to hold talks with the chairman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami. The two sides discussed around two hours and agreed upon a “constructive agreement.”

The IAEA and Iran reached a consensus on monitoring cameras, technical issues, and the need for resuming nuclear talks. Eslami addressed reporters after the meeting, saying that Iran accepted to allow the IAEA inspectors to visit Iran in order to change memory cards of monitoring cameras and carry out technical procedures needed for the cameras, and that the inspectors must seal the memory cards here in Iran and install new memory cards.

At the end of the meeting between Grossi and Eslami, they issued a statement, emphasizing that the both sides will continue cooperation and respect mutual trust in a constructive atmosphere, hailing the spirit of cooperation and mutual trust.
