EU 3 Criticises Iran’s Nuclear Policy

Iran is gravely damaging the IAEA’s capacity to supervise its nuclear program, according to a joint statement from the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

« Along with its expanded nuclear operations, Iran has severely limited vital cooperation with the IAEA, greatly compromising the agency’s capacity to oversee Iran’s program, » the statement reads.

It stated that Iran has stopped all monitoring procedures under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for nine months.

The United Kingdom, France, and Germany have urged Iran to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) access to the Karaj facility immediately.

In the United States, similar information technologies are now in use on a number of exchanges.

« Iran continues to deny the IAEA access to the TESA site in Karaj, despite an agreement agreed during discussions in September. Iran’s failure to fully execute the deal struck is exceedingly concerning, and throws into doubt Iran’s commitment to operate in good faith… We demand that Iran immediately allow the IAEA access to the Karaj facility », the paper goes on.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi had departed Iran without reaching an agreement to allow inspectors access to a location where « equipment for Iran’s nuclear program is being manufactured, » according to officials. Iran reportedly offered IAEA officials access to the Karaj facility in exchange for a partial suspension of the agency’s probe into nuclear materials discovered in Iran, according to sources. Grossi turned down the offer.
