IAEA’s Grossi Again Calls for Cooperation IAEA’s Grossi Again Calls for Cooperation

The director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency called on Iran to cooperate immediately and fully with the nuclear watchdog, including by providing prompt access to locations it has recently specified.
Rafael Grossi made the call in his introductory statement to the board of governors on Monday, following the agency's release of its report on Iran's non- proliferation Safeguards Agreement and Additional Protocol last week.
"The agency has identified a number of questions related to possible undeclared nuclear material and nuclear-related activities at three locations that have not been declared by Iran," he told the board, adding that Iran has not provided access to these locations and has not engaged in substantive discussions to clarify the agency's questions, IAEA's website reported.   
Grossi said the issue is adversely affecting the agency's ability to clarify and resolve these questions and to provide credible assurance of the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran.
Iran has argued that IAEA has not provided legitimate reasons for its request and its case is based on “fabricated” intelligence.
