Iran: Nuclear site images won’t be given to IAEA, since inspection deal expired
UN nuclear watchdog says it received no reply from Tehran over an extension to the already temporary agreement, which lapsed last week
By TOI staff and Agencies

Iran said Sunday it will not hand over images from some Iranian nuclear sites to the UN nuclear watchdog, as the monitoring agreement between the sides has expired, according to state media. “The agreement has expired… any of the information recorded will never be given to the International Atomic Energy Agency and the data and images will remain in the possession of Iran,” Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, speaker of Iran’s parliament said on Sunday, according to the Reuters news agency.

On Friday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it had received no reply from Tehran over the possible extension of a temporary agreement covering inspections at Iranian nuclear facilities which expired on Thursday. The IAEA said in a statement its director Rafael Grossi had written to Tehran about the matter on 17 June but that “Iran had not replied to his letter or indicated whether it intends to maintain the current arrangement.” Grossi said “an immediate response from Iran is needed in this regard.”
