The IAEA reported that Iran had “informed the Agency that it intended to produce centrifuge rotor tubes and bellows at a new location in Isfahan, instead of at the centrifuge component production workshop at the TESA Karaj complex, and that the Agency could adjust its surveillance and monitoring measures accordingly”. It also noted that as of 24 January, “production… at this new workshop had yet to commence”. Iran’s IAEA envoy maintained that “the information gathered through… [the Agency’s] surveillance process will remain in Iran and the IAEA will not have access to it until Tehran resumes its nuclear commitments under the JCPOA”.
