Iran and IAEA

Grossi confirms progress between Iran, IAEA

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi has confirmed that Iran and the nuclear watchdog have made progress on certain issues.

Speaking to reporters in New York on Tuesday, Grossi said his report on the status of Iran’s nuclear program is due to be published soon.

“We are working on several issues with Iran, and we are making progress in some of them and not in others,” he said.

The remarks came days before a quarterly meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna.

On May 30, Iran said two cases raised by the IAEA have been closed through Tehran’s goodwill and cooperation, vowing readiness for further cooperation if the agency holds on to its merely professional job.

During the recent technical negotiations between the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the case of one of the sites that had been brought up by the IAEA (the alleged Abadeh site) was resolved. As such, the second case of alleged sites by the agency was closed, sources with knowledge of the matter have said.

Moreover, the IAEA’s alleged case regarding the findings of uranium particles with 83.7 purity has also been closed.
