“During the visit of Rafael Grossi, which took place against the background of negotiations in Vienna , a comprehensive technical cooperation was agreed between Iran and the IAEA, on the basis of which a phased agreement will be concluded,” he said.

According to the diplomat, “the agency asked questions about a number of facilities in Iran.” “The parties agreed that within the next 1-2 months all questions will be answered within the framework of technical cooperation between Iran and the IAEA, provided that the agency refuses to politicize [the issue] and pressure,” said Said Khatibzade >. “There is a direct link between these issues and the agreement in Vienna.”

The IAEA and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said in a joint statement on Saturday that the parties agreed during Rafael Grossi's visit to Tehran continue cooperation to resolve outstanding issues regarding inspections at the three disputed nuclear facilities.
