UN nuclear chief concedes Iran to grant ‘less access’ to inspectors at its sites
After meeting with officials in Tehran, IAEA head says watchdog will continue necessary monitoring and verification of Iranian program

The head of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said that Iran will begin offering its inspectors “less access,” but will still allow the agency to monitor its atomic program. Rafael Grossi made the comments on arrival in Vienna late Sunday night after holding talks with officials in Tehran. He was careful to say that there still would be the same number of inspectors, but there would be “things we lose.”

“What we agreed is something that is viable — it is useful to bridge this gap that we are having now, it salvages the situation now,” Grossi told reporters. “There is less access, let’s face it. But still, we were able to retain the necessary degree of monitoring and verification work,” he said. Iran’s conservative-dominated parliament passed a law in December demanding the country suspend some inspections if the US failed to lift sanctions. The law is due to go into effect on Tuesday.
