The International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran continues to violate many of the restrictions imposed on it under the nuclear agreement, and the agency stated in a report that it was not able to fully verify Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium.
It also expressed its concern that the technical negotiations with Tehran did not lead to the desired results, and the agency confirmed that Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile exceeds 16 times the limit permitted so far.
A report issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency today, Monday, showed that Iran did not explain the reason for the presence of uranium traces in a number of undeclared sites, which could renew the diplomatic confrontation between Tehran and the West and hinder nuclear talks.
In turn, the chief Iranian negotiator, Abbas Araqchi, said that the Vienna negotiations are progressing, but they are complicated, and that the delegations have reached the stage of discussing the main points of disagreement, adding that a large part of the draft agreement is ready.
Meanwhile, the work of the fifth round of negotiations to save the Iranian nuclear agreement continues for the seventh day in the Austrian capital Vienna.
The delegations of the participating countries are meeting to find solutions to some of the disagreements, most of which are related to the sanctions that Iran demands the United States lift.
Negotiations are taking place at a time when the participating parties hope that this round will be the last, and that a solution will soon be reached, according to which Washington and Tehran will return to abiding by the terms of the nuclear agreement.
Iran announced that its negotiating delegation in Vienna met with the Russian and Chinese delegations, and discussed the latest developments regarding drafting drafts and outstanding files.
Tehran also announced that the chief Iranian negotiator, Abbas Araghchi, met with the delegations of the three European countries, France, Britain and Germany, and representatives of the European Union in Vienna.
