The Index Today
The head of International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA announced plans for visiting Iran for talks over nuclear activity and the previous 2015 deal. Europe and the U.S have expressed concerns over the nation’s growing nuclear program recently.
Mariano Grossi, the Director-General wishes to meet Iran’s senior leadership to discuss nuclear inspections conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency. It has been reported that Iran has increased its uranium-enrichment and reduced cooperation with international facilities.
Grossi stated, “Within a few days I hope to be back in Tehran. There’s a new government in Iran, a government coming from a group that expresses very strong views about the nuclear program cooperation with international organizations like IAEA, so we need to adjust to each other like in any relationship.”
