On April 6th, 2022, Mohammad Eslami, chief of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said Iran has handed over documents related to outstanding issues to the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency). Iran wants the closure of the agency’s investigation into uranium particles found at three undeclared sites.
The Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA agreed a three-month plan to try to resolve the issue of the uranium particles found at old but undeclared sites in the country. This action would remove an obstacle to the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
In a news conference Mohammad Eslami said: “We have handed over the documents on March 20 to the agency. They are reviewing those documents and probably the agency’s representatives will travel to Iran for further talks and then the IAEA will present its conclusion”.
On March, IAEA announced a plan for a series of exchanges after the agency has long said Iran had not given satisfactory answers on those issues.
Rafael Grossi, the General Director of IAEA said on March he wants to report his conclusion by the June 2022 (IAEA) Board of Governors’ meeting, which begins on June 6.
Iran and US had for eleven months indirect talks in Vienna on salvaging the 2015 deal have stalled. The both sides say are required political decisions by Tehran and Washington to settle the remaining issues.
