Iran will decide whether to extend its monitoring deal with the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA after its expiry on June 24, Iranian state TV’s news website quoted presidential chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi as saying on Wednesday.
“It has been decided that after the expiration of the agreement’s deadline, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (will) decide about the agreement’s extension at its first meeting,” Vaezi said, according to the website.
Iran and the UN nuclear watchdog reached a three-month accord in February - which was extended on May 24 for a month - to cushion the blow of Tehran’s decision to reduce its cooperation with the IAEA by ending extra monitoring measures introduced by its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
Last week, the head of the UN nuclear watchdog said in remarks published in La Repubblica that reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear accord will have to await the formation of a new Iranian government.
