Iran’s IAEA mission submitted to the agency’s secretariat an Explanatory Note responding to the Director General’s 5 June report, along with a separate information note. Iran’s envoy said Tehran “expects that the Agency does not take any information at face value” and that “the Agency and the Member states have the reasonability to show wisdom in addressing such issues in a diligent manner”. He further indicated that “while Iran stands ready to continue its consultations with the Agency with a view to settle the thematic differences and resolve the issues at hand as soon as possible, release of the current report by the Director General is received with deep regret and disappointment”.
