On Saturday, an agreement has been reached with the UN nuclear watchdog, according to Iran’s nuclear body chief, on resolving issues related to its nuclear program that have become sticking points in salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal.
Iran has agreed to provide the agency with documents related to outstanding issues by mid-June, Mohammad Eslami told a joint news conference with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Rafael Grossi in Tehran
Late on Friday, Grossi arrived in Tehran to discuss issues related to alleged undeclared nuclear sites and uranium traces, which have delayed the final outcome of talks currently underway in Vienna.
Grossi’s visit comes as the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal say they are at the cusp of an agreement to revive the nuclear deal after months-long talks.
Adding that the revival of the JCPOA was impossible without resolving the “outstanding issues,” Grossi said it was “important to have this understanding” with Iran.
Grossi urged Tehran to address these issues before a deal is clinched in Vienna.
The IAEA chief also held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
