Temporary solution’ announced between Iran, UN atomic agency.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Rafael Grossi met in Tehran with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the head of the Iran Atomic Energy Organisation, Ali Akbar Salehi.
The head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog said on Sunday that a three-month “temporary solution” had been found to allow the agency’s monitoring in Iran to continue, although its level of access will be limited from Tuesday.
“What we agreed is something that is viable — it is useful to bridge this gap that we are having now, it salvages the situation now,” Rafael Grossi, head of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told reporters after flying back from talks in Tehran.
Iran’s conservative-dominated parliament passed a law in December demanding the country suspend some inspections if the US failed to lift sanctions.
The law is due to go into effect on Tuesday.
