Iran’s pact with IAEA ends, inspectors no longer allowed to take pictures of nuclear installations: Iran.
Iran’s Speaker of the Parliament, Muhammad Bakr Qaleb, said on Sunday that the three-month monitoring agreement between Tehran and the United Nations Nuclear Monitoring Organization has come to an end on Saturday.
Therefore, Tehran will no longer allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to take pictures of its nuclear facilities.
Iran’s pact with IAEA ends: Efforts to revive the 1915 nuclear deal between Iran and six countries could have an impact.
On the other hand, IAEA chiefs are in talks with Iran to extend the surveillance deadline.
State TV quoted Muhammad Bakr Qalibuff as saying that the agency would not be allowed to take photographs inside the nuclear complexes after a three-month agreement expired on May 22.
Iran was slowly breaking the terms of the agreement since the then President Donald Trump of the US came out of the agreement and imposed sanctions on Iran in 2018.
The purpose of this agreement is to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons.
Iran on the other hand says that it never wanted to make nuclear weapons. In February, the IAEA and Iran agreed to monitor and verify nuclear targets.
In 2017, the IAEA stated that it had analyzed thousands of photographs captured through its advanced surveillance cameras. In addition, it has also sealed nuclear materials and equipment.
