Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the IAEA in the Islamic Republic, told the official IRNA news agency that, in accordance with this, the investigations of the United Nations agency at Iranian nuclear facilities will be increased by 50%.
He specified that inspections at the Fordow plant, where Iran enriches uranium to 60%, were increased from eight to 11.
Basically, any increase in the level of enrichment or entry of more sensitive materials into the nuclear facilities entails a greater number of inspections, as agreed by the two sides, he explained.
Kamalvandi’s statements follow a two-day visit to Tehran by IAEA chief Rafael Grossi, who acknowledged that Iran is easing investigations into alleged uranium enrichment to a degree close to that needed for an atomic weapon.
There is an atmosphere of work, honesty and cooperation, Grossi said in a press conference, after meeting with authorities related to the Persian nation’s nuclear program.
