DUBAI: A three-month monitoring deal between Tehran and the UN nuclear watchdog expired on Saturday, Iran’s parliament speaker told the country’s state TV on Sunday, adding that access to images of nuclear sites would cease.
The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, is to hold a conference on Sunday. He is in talks with Iran on extending the arrangement which could have an impact on negotiations between Tehran and six powers to revive a 2015 nuclear deal, the IAEA said. Iran’s state TV quoted an official saying the deal between IAEA and Tehran could be extended “conditionally” for a month. “If major powers accept Iran’s legal demands, then the data will be handed over to the agency,” he said.
