TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said it would not demand to inspect any more sites in Iran after visiting the two locations to which Iran agreed to grant access in late August, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said.
In remarks on Saturday, AEOI Chief Ali Akbar Salehi said the UN nuclear agency inspectors came to Iran and visited one of the two sites specified beforehand according to a recent joint statement.
“The first inspection was carried out and nothing special happened,” he added.
The time of the second inspection has been set, but it would not be made public, Salehi noted.
He further said the IAEA officials have announced that they have no more demands after inspecting the two sites in Iran.
Iran announced in late August it would allow the IAEA access to the two sites, following a visit to Tehran by IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi.
On June 19, the Board of Governors passed a resolution, put forward by Britain, France and Germany – the three European signatories to the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), to push for inspections of two sites that the trio claims may have been used for undeclared nuclear activities in the early 2000s.
It was the Israeli regime’s spy service that first came up with the allegations of such activity at the two sites. Iran has, however, strictly rejected the allegations.
