Discussing “detected natural uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at a location in Iran”, IAEA Acting Director General Cornel Feruta noted that “we have continued our interactions with Iran since [Feruta’s 7 November report to the Board of Governors], but have not received any additional information and the matter remains unresolved”. He further urged “Iran to provide full and timely cooperation with the Agency in implementing its Safeguards Agreement and Additional Protocol”. Iran’s representative to the IAEA subsequently underlined that “when the Agency informed Iran that they had some questions on a specific location, Iran has shown cooperation and transparency, and granted full access to the Agency to visit the location in question and collect samples… we should avoid any immature conclusion”.
