The European Union demands that Iran restore the accreditation of several IAEA inspectors
Tehran refused to accredit some representatives of the International Nuclear Energy Agency mission inspecting Iranian energy facilities. The European Union is demanding that Iran restore the accreditation of several IAEA inspectors who were deprived of it.
This is reported by the agency AFP.
Brussels expressed extreme concern about the decision of the Iranian authorities and demanded that it be cancelled. According to EU officials, such a move by Iran will prevent the IAEA from effectively monitoring the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also called the “nuclear deal.”
- said the representative of the EU.
This agreement was concluded in 2015 between the Islamic Republic and several major world powers: Russia, China, USA, Britain, France and Germany. The European Union is considered to be the coordinator of the deal. The document stipulated the lifting of sanctions against Iran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program.
The accreditations of several IAEA inspectors were revoked on September 16. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani explained that Tehran has the right to do this in accordance with the provisions of the agreement on guarantees of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty weapons. According to the Iranian side, it is caused by abuses by the authorities of Western states that signed the JCPOA.
