Britain, France and Germany have called on Iran to immediately restore access for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Karaj facility. This is stated in joint statement three countries, published on November 24 on the website of the British Foreign Office.
It is noted that understanding on the part of Iran following the September talks, Tehran continues to deny the agency access to the TESA facility in Karaj.
“The fact that Iran has not fully complied with the agreement reached is of utmost concern. We call on Iran to urgently restore the IAEA’s access to the facility in Karaj, ”the statement said.
The appeal also says that Tehran has a sufficient amount of nuclear fuel so that after enrichment it would be enough to produce more than one nuclear charge.
Earlier Wednesday newspaper Wall street journal with reference to diplomats, she said that IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi left Iran because he could not obtain consent for inspectors’ access to a facility where, in his opinion, equipment for the Iranian nuclear program could be created.
According to the newspaper, Iran offered to provide IAEA staff with access to the facility in Karaj in exchange for a partial suspension of the agency’s investigation into nuclear materials found in Iran. Rafael Grossi responded negatively to this proposal.
During negotiations with the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami Grossi stressed that Iran did not deviate from its obligations to develop its nuclear program.
On September 12, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Mohammad Eslami, said that Tehran would restore the IAEA’s access to cameras at nuclear facilities in Iran. In addition, the agency and Iran agreed to continue contacts and expand cooperation in the field of common interests. Also, the parties decided to “maintain interaction and meetings at the appropriate levels.”
In late May, the agency and Tehran agreed to extend by three months a temporary agreement on monitoring at Iranian nuclear facilities, which ended on May 23, but was then extended until June 24. As a result, the IAEA lost access to surveillance cameras at nuclear facilities in Iran. Tehran said that the information from the cameras will be erased after three months, if the United States does not lift the sanctions against Iran.
