IAEA General Director Rafael Grossi confirmed that Iran had disabled IAEA 27 cameras and online monitoring systems, and asserted: “This is obviously a very, very serious thing with regards to not only the possibility of reviving the 2015 agreement, the JCPOA, but in general terms… In such a situation I might no longer be in a position to confirm the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program writ large”. He further maintained that “the longer the lapse without the visibility we need, the more difficult it [reviving the JCPOA] will be because no one, no one can go into an agreement without knowing what your baseline is”. Addressing Iranian authorities, Grossi emphasised: “We have to sit down now, we have to address the situation, we have to continue working together”.
