Iran allows “conditional access” to locations requested by IAEA

Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has agreed to provide “conditional access” to the locations requested by the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA), Tasnim news agency reported.

Iran was not initially opposed to the IAEA’s demand for inspection of two locations in Iran, respectively near Shahreza city in the central province of Isfahan and near the capital Tehran, spokesman for the AEOI Behrouz Kamalvandi said, Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.

However, the IAEA’s questions must be based on serious evidence and documents instead of “mere allegations,” he noted.

Rafael Mariano Grossi, director general of the IAEA, is scheduled to arrive in Tehran on Monday to meet with the Iranian authorities.

During his visit, Grossi will address the cooperation of Iran with the IAEA, “in particular Iran’s provision of access to the agency’s inspectors to requested locations,” an IAEA statement said Saturday.
