No planned visit to the International Atomic Energy Agency

The head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency, Mohammad Eslami, announced that a visit to Iran by the International Atomic Energy Agency of the United Nations was not on the agenda.

He added that his country hopes for “good results if the agency takes a professional path away from political considerations,” he claimed.

He claimed after an Iranian government meeting that the United States, France, Germany and Britain “drafted a draft resolution and brought with them documents which they realize are false,” state media reported Wednesday.

Nuclear Materials at Iranian Sites

On Tuesday night, the United States and the three countries submitted a draft resolution to the International Atomic Energy Agency condemning Iran’s lack of cooperation with the UN body over the presence of nuclear material at unauthorized sites, according to two diplomats.

The draft resolution, which calls for Iran’s full cooperation with the IAEA, follows a report by the panel which concluded that “no progress” had been made in an investigation into finding traces of nuclear material at three unauthorized sites in Iran .

The text of the resolution stresses that it is “necessary and urgent” that “Iran takes the initiative to fulfill its legal obligations,” according to the Agence France Presse.

Vote for the text

The text will also be discussed and voted on during this week’s scheduled quarterly meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors, which begins on Wednesday. A simple majority is required to pass resolutions.

While the agency passed a similar resolution condemning Iran last June, Russia and China voted against it.

Notably, last April talks began to revive the nuclear deal, which has stalled since the US pulled out in 2018.

And last month, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken reiterated that he sees little room for a revival of the Iran nuclear deal.
