IAEA to criticize Iran for declining to provide access to its nuclear sites
The International Atomic Energy Agency considers issuing a report to berate Iran for allegedly declining to provide access to the sites that are of interest to the UN nuclear watchdog, several diplomats said.
In addition to a quarterly report, the agency plans to issue a separate report on the same day, calling Iran out for its lack of cooperation in general and its failure to provide access in particular.
"The second report will be on Safeguards issues linked to sites that the IAEA did not get access to. We know of two cases, but we don’t know whether the IAEA will put both in (the report)," Reuters cited a European diplomat as saying.
The IAEA is seeking access to one or more sites mentioned in that trove, which Israel refers to as the “atomic archive” of information on Iran’s former nuclear weapons program.
