IAEA inspectors gain access to one of two Iran nuclear sites

IAEA inspectors gain access to one of two Iran sites,  RTL Today,   Author: AFP| : 04.09.2020   The UN’s nuclear watchdog said Friday that Iran had granted its inspectors access to one of two sites where undeclared nuclear activity may have taken place in the early 2000s.

“Iran provided Agency inspectors access to the location to take environmental samples,” an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report seen by AFP said.

“The samples will be analysed by laboratories that are part of the Agency’s network,” it added.

One diplomatic source told AFP the results of this analysis could take up to three months.

An inspection at the second site will take place “later in September 2020,” the report said.

Iran had denied the agency access earlier this year, prompting the IAEA’s board of governors to pass a resolution in June urging Tehran to comply with its requests.

Tehran announced last week it would allow the IAEA access to the two sites, following a visit by IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi…….
