IAEA, Iran agree temporary deal for inspections with less access
Al Jazeera, 22 Feb 2021
The UN nuclear watchdog says it has reached a temporary agreement with Iran to give its inspectors less access to its nuclear facilities while allowing the agency to monitor its atomic programme for up to three months.
Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Rafael Grossi arrived in Tehran on Saturday ahead of Tehran's plan to partly suspend his agency's inspections of its nuclear facilities.
Tehran wants to put pressure on the US to remove sanctions but President Joe Biden wants Iran to return to full compliance of the 2015 nuclear deal before restarting talks.
