Following earlier reports on Iran having moved equipment at the centrifuge component production workshop at the TESA Karaj complex to Natanz, the IAEA reportedly confirmed that “it had finished installing surveillance cameras at the location on April 12 and had then removed the seals from the machines”. “On 13 April”, the IAEA indicated, “Iran informed the Agency that the machines would start operating at the new workshop the same day”. The following day, Iran’s IAEA envoy noted that the agency “wasn’t allowed to have access to the footages of the surveillance cameras and wouldn’t be allowed until Iran resumes full compliance with the JCPOA”.
