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.”
