Iran has declared its readiness to meet experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over existing dispute on nuclear acquisition.
The 2015 nuclear deal with Iran had encountered some challenges with the UN’s atomic energy watchdog saying the country was frustrating progress.
However, IAEA’s Director General Rafael Grossi told reporters in Vienna on Thursday that Iran has agreed to meet with international experts investigating the discovery of uranium particles at several undeclared sites.
Grossi also said Iran had accepted holding a series of meetings with the UN nuclear watchdog in order to “clarify a number of outstanding issues”
The announcement came as Germany, France and the UK decided to pause the submission of a resolution criticizing Iran’s suspension of some IAEA inspections. The resolution was intended to be brought before the IAEA’s board of governors this week.
