The AEOI chief traveled to Vienna to participate in the annual meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Regarding the termination of licenses for some of the agency's inspectors in Iran, Islami told Al Jazeera on Wednesday that 120 agency inspectors are now working in Iran and have Tehran's trust, adding that Iran has the right to object to the acts of a few of them if it so desires.
