Discussing Iranian legislation mandating the expansion of nuclear activities, IAEA Director General Raphael Grossi warned that “if implemented, these measures would be an even further deviation from the commitments that Iran entered into when it joined the [nuclear] agreement… I cannot imagine who would win from such a situation. If there was any limitation of the IAEA inspectors as a result of this or any other situation were curtailed in their work”. “We would have to be very clear to the world this is happening. And this in itself would not help anyone including Iran”, he added. Referring to IAEA concerns over Iran’s safeguards declarations, Grossi indicated that “we are getting unsatisfactory answers so we are insisting on getting some”.
