IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi remarked that “for almost five weeks I have had very limited visibility, with a nuclear program [in Iran] that is galloping ahead and, therefore, if there is an agreement, it is going to be very difficult for me to reconstruct the puzzle of this whole period of forced blindness… It is not impossible, but it is going to require a very complex task and perhaps some specific agreements”. Grossi added: “The agency needed to reconstruct a database, without which any agreement will rest on a very fragile basis, because if we don't know what’s there, how can we determine how much material to export, how many centrifuges to leave unused?”
