Iran, IAEA address agency's erroneous statements about nuclear sites

According to a report, Iran and the UN nuclear inspectors have settled concerns originating from bogus, unfounded claims against Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.

Iran (IMNA) - The matter of one of the claimed "undetected" locations raised by the agency (known as Abadeh) was closed during recent technical discussions between the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

This puts the total number of cases involving the supposed "undetected" locations stated by the IAEA to two, according to the report.

The report also stated that the IAEA's claims concerning uranium particles with a purity of 83.7 discovered at Iran's secret nuclear installations had been addressed.

Iran and the IAEA are at odds over the organization's allegations that Tehran is engaging in peaceful nuclear activity under Israeli control. The IAEA persisted on looking into "uranium traces" that it says were discovered at "undeclared nuclear sites" in Iran.

The matter has been a major area of contention in negotiations to save the 2015 nuclear agreement, which have been deadlocked since last August. Iran has called the investigation "politically motivated."

Mohammad Eslami, the chief of the AEOI, vehemently denied any assertions, including those made by the UN nuclear watchdog, that Iran was engaged in nuclear activity or was in possession of nuclear material last September.

Iran has no unreported nuclear activity or supplies. All charges are only supported by false and inaccurate information given by the Israeli regime, he claimed.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi stated that Tehran expects the IAEA to approach its nuclear energy program in a "professional and fair" manner and to avoid being influenced by certain powers that are pursuing their own particular goals during a meeting with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi in Tehran at the beginning of March.
