IAEA chief to visit Iran in coming days

Tehran (ISNA) - The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Mariano Grossi said he will visit Iran in the coming days.

In an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, Rafael Mariano Grossi said he hopes to meet Iran’s senior leadership to discuss disagreements around IAEA nuclear inspections, which he’s described as being in a “fragile state”.

Yesterday, European media have reported that Rafael Grossi seeks an urgent meeting with Iran’s foreign minister as part of efforts to revive the Iranian nuclear deal.

He told the Financial Times in an interview, he urgently needed to meet Tehran’s foreign minister to discuss proposals to reinvigorate the fragile surveillance program.

“I haven’t been able to talk to [Iran’s new] foreign minister,” Grossi told the FT during a visit to Washington. “I need to have this contact at the political level. This is indispensable. Without it, we cannot understand each other.”
