The IAEA declared the need for a high-level dialogue with Iran

The IAEA needs a dialogue with Iran at the highest possible level to clarify all the necessary issues, said IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi on Monday.

“The work is ongoing. There are a number of things that, on the one hand, as you know, are related to the implementation of the JCPOA, and on the other, there are more permanent guarantee obligations. We are in contact with Iran, we are trying to clarify a number of issues. We are still in process, but have not yet reached a point where they could give a full assessment of what is happening”, – Grossi told the reporters.

“In this regard, I look forward to the opportunity to continue communication with the Iranian authorities at the highest possible level. I think it is very important that we can make sure that we understand each other well… I would say that we cannot do without such a dialogue”, – he added.

In 2015, the Six (Great Britain, Germany, China, Russia, the USA, France) and Iran announced the achievement of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan. The agreement provided for the lifting of sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran’s nuclear program. The deal in its original form did not survive even three years: in May 2018, the United States announced a unilateral withdrawal from it and the restoration of stringent sanctions against the Islamic republic. Iran announced a phased reduction of its obligations under the agreement, requiring the parties to the transaction to fulfill their obligations to cooperate with Iran.
