JUST IN: At Last, Iran, UN Watchdog Reach Fresh Nuclear Agreement To Prevent Looming Crisis

Iran and the IAEA have reached a new nuclear agreement that will prevent another crisis looming over the prospect of restoring Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal.

The head of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran’s nuclear chief have reached an agreement after meetings held in Tehran over the weekend.

Rafael Grossi, director general of the IEAE landed in Tehran and met Mohammad Eslami, the newly appointed head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

The talks with the nuclear watchdog were aimed at easing a standoff between Iran and the West just as it threatened to escalate and ruin negotiations on reviving the Iran nuclear deal.

Iran and the UN nuclear agency said Sunday they have agreed to allow inspectors to service the agency’s surveillance equipment as Tehran had restricted access since earlier this year.

“IAEA’s inspectors are permitted to service the identified equipment and replace their storage media which will be kept under the joint IAEA and (Iran’s) AEOI seals in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The way and the timing are agreed by the two sides,” they said in a joint statement, according to a report from Aljazeera.

Iran had met with the P5+ Nations in 2015 and secured a nuclear deal (the Iran nuclear deal), which promised Iran sanctions relief in return for curbs on its nuclear programme.

The agreement was ruined in 2018 by then US president Donald Trump’s unilateral decision to withdraw Washington from it and impose a punishing sanctions regime.

Iran has subsequently stepped away from many of its commitments, but the administration of US President Joe Biden has advocated a return to diplomacy to save the agreement.

A point of contention this year has been limits Iran has imposed on the IAEA’s ability to monitor various of its nuclear facilities.

Iran has refused to provide real-time footage from cameras and other surveillance tools that the UN agency has installed in these locations.

The new agreement will see this issue being rectified.
