IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi underscored that “the cooperation of Iran as an inspected state has not been interrupted. We are there, our inspectors are there. They are carrying out their activities, which is very important”. “At the same time”, Grossi added, “what our inspectors have been verifying is the diminishing degree of compliance of the agreement in 2015”. He also noted: “the Iranians have said ‘we don’t have any restrictions any more’ but they haven’t done anything concrete to follow [up] on that announcement”. Grossi further indicated that “we haven’t had for the time being satisfactory clarification” regarding the presence of anthropogenic uranium particles at a warehouse in Turquzabad.
