IAEA confirms visiting second location in Iran

Tehran, Sept 30, IRNA – The International Atomic Energy Agency in a statement on Wednesday confirmed that the IAEA's experts have gained access to the second location in Iran as per an agreement.

"As part of an agreement with Iran to resolve safeguards implementation issues specified by the IAEA, the Agency this week conducted a complementary access at the second location in the country and took environmental samples," the IAEA said in its statement.

Last week, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi once again welcomed the agreement between the Agency and Iran, hoping the agreement will reinforce cooperation and enhance mutual trust.

Grossi made the remarks in a statement to the 64th Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference.

"I report regularly to the Board of Governors on Iran’s implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action," Grossi said.

The Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under the Safeguards Agreement, he said, adding that evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities for Iran continue.

He then referred to his last month's visit to Tehran when he met with President Hassan Rouhani and reached an agreement "on the settlement of the dispute about the implementation of the Safeguards raised by the Agency".

"The Agency subsequently conducted complimentary access, under the Additional Protocol, to one of two locations specified by us. Our inspectors took environmental samples which will be analyzed. A complimentary access to the second specified location will take place later this month," Grossi added.
