Iran should respond promptly to the Agency’s questions

Statement by Cornell Fruta Interim Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency:

“While traveling to Tehran, I spoke with Iranian officials about verification activities and monitoring the following activities, as well as the implementation of safeguards agreements.

The Agency will continue to verify and monitor Iran’s nuclear-related commitments under this Agreement.

Assessment of the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities continues. Concerning the Safeguards Agreement and the Additional Protocol, in my talks in Tehran, I emphasized the importance of full and timely cooperation by Iran.

It is important that our interactions progress, so I emphasized the need for an immediate response from Iran to the Agency’s questions regarding the completion of Iran Safeguards Declaration.”
