이란, IAEA 핵사찰 제한 공식화…IAEA “이란 미신고 장소에 핵물질 존재했을 수도”
With continuing tensions between the U.S. and Iran…over who will act first in restoring the 2015 nuclear deal…Iran raises tensions a notch, officially restricting international inspections on its nuclear sites.
Western countries harshly condemned the movem as the IAEA says Tehran could be storing uranium at unreported nuclear sites.
For more on this and other news from around the world, we turn to Choi Jeong-yoon at the news center.
Jeong-yoon, so it’s the first time for Iran to officially impose curbs?
Yes, Mok-yeon, the Iranian Foreign Minister announced that a new law had gone into effect on Tuesday…meaning it will no longer share surveillance footage of its nuclear facilities with the U.N. agency.
This makes the reduction of access official…of the International Atomic Energy Agency to Iran nuclear activities.
Iran used to submit tape recording of its nuclear programs to the IAEA on a daily or weekly basis…but with the new code, they can erase the tapes.
Iran’s move is read as an effort to pressure European countries and President Biden to lift crippling economic sanctions and restore the 2015 nuclear deal that the Trump administration withdrew from 3 years ago.
The IAEA, meanwhile, raised concerns that there could be nuclear materials at unreported facilities…saying Iran hasn’t reported necessary or trustworthy information on its nuclear activities for 18 months.
It also reported that Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium is now more than 14 times over the limit set under the 2015 deal.
