Iran still denying inspectors ‘essential’ access to workshop: IAEA report

Published: Updated:

The UN nuclear watchdog has still not had access to re-install surveillance cameras at the TESA Karaj centrifuge-parts workshop in Iran, though that is essential to reviving the Iran nuclear deal, the agency said in a report on Wednesday.

International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors have also continued to be “subjected to excessively invasive physical searches by security officials at nuclear facilities in Iran”, a second quarterly report issued on Wednesday said, after diplomats said such incidents had happened at the Natanz nuclear site.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that production resumed months ago at the workshop, which was hit by apparent sabotage in June.

One of four International Atomic Energy Agency cameras there was destroyed in the attack and Iran subsequently removed the rest.

Iran has blamed Israel for the sabotage.
