Iran’s ambassador to the Vienna-based international organizations said that inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have come up with the new rules and regulations at Iran’s nuclear installations.
“Security measures at the nuclear facilities in Iran are, reasonably, tightened,” Kazem Gharibabadi wrote in a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday.
“The IAEA inspectors have gradually come up with the new rules and regulations,” he added.
Gharibabadi’s remarks came one day after the head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog said that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran can address issues through “productive dialogue”.
Rafael Groosi made the remarks in his address to a meeting of the IAEA’s Board of Governors in Vienna on Monday.
“I hope that through a direct, cooperative and productive dialogue with the new government of the Islamic Republic of Iran these urgent matters can be addressed,” Grossi said.
On Sunday, the IAEA’s chief visited Tehran where he and the Iranian officials hammered out a deal that enables the nuclear agency to service its surveillance equipment there.
The deal gives IAEA’s inspectors access to surveillance equipment at Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Under the deal, the footage of the IAEA’s monitoring cameras will be handed over to the UN agency if and when there is an agreement between Iran and world powers on the revival of the 2015 deal, also known as the JCPOA.
Talks to revive the JCPOA that started in Vienna in April are currently stalled.
Grossi said on Sunday that the agreement solved “the most urgent issue” between the IAEA and Iran, according to Reuters.
