IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, discussing the implementation of a March 2023 agreement with Iran, assessed that “I don’t think it’s working at the level and at the pace I would like to see it working… what we agreed is that Iran would be collaborating with the Agency limiting some activities, allowing us to add more verification, monitoring capacities. We have been able to do some of that, not all of that”. He further noted that “Iran is continuing its enrichment activities and of course this is raising concerns. So this is why we are telling our Iranian counterparts that the only way for them to get some confidence internationally is to help and to contribute and to work together with us”.
