Iran and IAEA Agree to Strengthen Cooperation in Hopeful Sign for Nuclear Talks

HeadlineMar 06, 2023

The International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran have agreed to increase cooperation and monitoring of nuclear activities, following a visit by the IAEA chief, Rafael Grossi, to Tehran.

Rafael Grossi: “What we have agreed is on a number of concrete actions, like accesses that we are going to have to information and places. … I believe that an improvement, a marked improvement, at least in terms of my dialogue with the Iranian government, has been registered.”

The agreement offered a glimmer of hope following recent reports Iran successfully enriched uranium to near weapons-grade level and amid stalled talks on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which the U.S. withdrew from in 2018 under President Trump.
