Iran: Temporary deal limiting IAEA access to sites is ‘significant achievement’
Tehran says under agreement, inspectors stay in nuclear sites; some cameras will run at suspicious non-nuclear sites, but IAEA won’t get footage until sanctions rolled back
By Agencies and TOI staff

Iran on Monday hailed as a “significant achievement” the outcome of a visit by the head of the UN nuclear watchdog and a temporary agreement the sides reached on site inspections. That deal effectively bought time as the United States, European powers and Tehran try to salvage the 2015 nuclear agreement, which has been on the brink of collapse since former US president Donald Trump withdrew from it. Tehran now demands that Washington scrap punishing sanctions Trump reimposed in 2018, while US President Joe Biden’s administration demands that Iran first return to all its nuclear commitments. In the standoff, Iran’s conservative-dominated parliament has ordered the government to start limiting some inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from Tuesday. IAEA chief Rafael Grossi held last-ditch talks in Tehran on Sunday where the two sides hammered out a temporary technical deal.
