International Atomic Energy Agency Director-General Rafael Grossi arrived in Tehran on Saturday for talks to reinstate the nuclear watchdog’s ability to monitor the Iranian nuclear program, as efforts to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal hang in the balance. Grossi’s quick trip comes days after Iran has denied the IAEA access to its remote surveillance equipment, as well as an IAEA report that Iran continues to almost totally stonewall the agency’s inquiry, which began in 2018, into nuclear materials found at undeclared sites. It also comes a day before an IAEA Board of Governors meeting, at which Western states are considering condemning Iran in response to the report.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Friday that the IAEA report indicates a need for the world to immediately act against Iran, and that “Israel will do everything to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons.”
