The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, said that the relationship between his country and the International Atomic Energy Agency continues, rejecting what was published by “Bloomberg” agency about the reduction of censorship. Islami added, “The agency is not responsible for the negotiations, but rather the 5 + 1 group, that is, the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany, pointing out that it is unlikely that the fate of the joint comprehensive action plan with the International Atomic Energy Agency will be decided in the coming months.”
In response to a question about whether the arms embargo on Iran will be lifted in October 2023, the head of the Iranian Energy Organization said: “Yes, according to the nuclear deal, the arms embargo must be lifted.”
The International Atomic Energy Agency said, in a joint statement with the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization last March, that Tehran had expressed its readiness to continue cooperation, provide more information and address outstanding safeguards issues. The statement said that it was agreed between the two sides to deal in a spirit of cooperation and on the basis of the comprehensive guarantees agreement, after Grossi’s visit to Tehran.
Tehran calls for closing the International Atomic Energy Agency file on finding traces of nuclear materials in three undeclared Iranian sites, which fall within the issue of guarantees, which Tehran demands to ensure the continuity of the agreement.
