Brussels — The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency will replace Iran on Wednesday to replace key equipment needed to monitor Iran, as it could be unfortunate to resume negotiations next week on the resurgence of Iran’s nuclear deal in 2015. He said he couldn’t convince him. Nuclear program.
This agency is responsible for monitoring nuclear activity between member states from the United Nations. The inspectors and cameras are the main source of information about Iran’s atomic program, and despite Iran’s reiteration of peaceful intentions, much of the West has the know-how and materials to manufacture nuclear weapons. I believe we are getting closer and closer to getting in.
Agency Secretary Rafael M. Grossi will re-install surveillance cameras at a centrifuge parts workshop in Karaj, Iran, during a two-day meeting in Tehran at a quarterly meeting of the Board of Directors in Geneva. He said no agreement was reached. This workshop was the target of a clear obstruction in June, when Iran blamed Israel.
After fierce negotiations, Mr. Grossi told reporters, “I did my best yesterday, but I couldn’t reach an agreement.” “We need to reach an agreement,” and vowed to continue our efforts.
The Karaj plant is remanufacturing parts for centrifuges that enrich uranium, but is not monitored by distributors. In September, Iran reached an agreement with Mr. Grossi, giving agency inspectors access to surveillance equipment such as cameras with full memory cards and sealed automated measuring equipment at various nuclear facilities. .. However, Iran subsequently denied inspector access to modify the memory card to retrieve the data.
Mr Grossi said negotiations with Iran would continue, but that time had run out.
“We are approaching a stage where we cannot guarantee the continuity of knowledge” of our activities at the workshop, he said, and the information is widely recognized as “essential in connection with the return to the 2015 nuclear agreement.” I’m doing it. ” It imposes strict restrictions on Iran’s pyknosis and other activities.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Iran refuses to provide agents with access to Karaj unless it withdraws some of its lengthy investigation into the discovery of undeclared nuclear material in Iran, and Tehran has either past or He raised concerns that he was hiding his current nuclear military activities.
President Biden is in talks to bring the United States back to the 2015 agreement. This agreement was abandoned by former President Donald J. Trump more than three years ago. However, as the final round of these negotiations ended in June, Iran elected a more conservative president, Ebrahim Raisi. He expressed deep skepticism about the value of the negotiations unless the United States immediately lifted all disciplinary sanctions against Iran and promised to leave the deal again. It is impossible to meet both of these conditions, says senior American officials.
For the first time since Raisi took office this summer on Monday, Iranian negotiators will meet with European, Chinese and Russian counterparts in Vienna to resume negotiations on the deal. But after meeting with Europeans, American negotiators are far more pessimistic than when they left Vienna five months ago. Today, the nuclear deal seems dead, and the vision of re-signing the deal in President Biden’s first year and then building something “longer and stronger” seems to be almost gone.
Iran responded to the re-imposition of U.S. disciplinary sanctions under Mr. Trump and the remarks of European countries that failed to fulfill their economic promises to Iran as part of the agreement. Violated the conditions.
U.S. officials say Iran’s ability to make weapons (a goal Iran has always denied) will probably be two years away, but Iran will have enough enriched uranium for one bomb within about two months. I presume that you can get it.
In Tehran, Mr. Grossi met with Mohammad Eslami, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, and Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdrahian, who said Tehran wanted “constructive engagement” with government agencies. ..
