Iran says UN can’t see images from cameras at nuclear site until sanctions end
After agreeing to new cameras, Tehran says images of Karaj ‘will be stored’ and not handed over to the IAEA
By AFP

TEHRAN, Iran — The United Nations atomic watchdog will not be able to examine camera images from a nuclear facility near the Iranian city of Karaj until after sanctions are lifted, an Iranian official said on Thursday. The comment came a day after Tehran and the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said they had reached agreement on replacing the cameras at the facility which makes centrifuges.

That agreement came after Western powers warned time is running out to revive a 2015 deal under which Iran pledged to reduce its nuclear capabilities — under IAEA supervision — in exchange for sanctions relief. Iran says the video surveillance cameras were damaged in a June attack that it blames on Israel. “The cameras will be installed in a way that they take images which will be stored in the cameras’ memory,” said Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.
