Apr 16, 2024

The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi is concerned about possible strikes by the Israeli Defense Forces on nuclear facilities in Iran.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to The Times of Israel.

According to Grossi, Iran closed its nuclear facilities on Sunday, April 14, for "security reasons."

On Monday, April 15, access to the facilities was opened, but the country's authorities did not allow IAEA inspectors to enter them, with the explanation "until we are sure that the situation has completely calmed down."

"We are going to resume work tomorrow (April 16 - ed.). This has not affected our inspection activities," Grossi told reporters in New York.

Answering a question about the possibility of an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities, Grossi said, "We are always concerned about that possibility." He called for “extreme restraint”.
