IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi told the Board of Governors that since February 2021, JCPOA-related nuclear monitoring and verification “have been seriously affected by Iran’s decision to stop the implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA, including the Additional Protocol”. Grossi also presented his conclusion on “the correctness and completeness of Iran’s declarations under its Safeguards Agreement and Additional Protocol”, based on the 5 March roadmap between Iran and the Agency. He stated: “Iran has not provided explanations that are technically credible in relation to the Agency’s findings at three undeclared locations in Iran. Nor has Iran informed the Agency of the current location, or locations, of the nuclear material and/or of the equipment contaminated with nuclear material, that was moved from Turquzabad in 2018… Therefore, the safeguards issues related to these three locations remain outstanding”.
