Iranian Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behruz Kamalwandi said on the 19th that Iran has begun technical and safety inspections of surveillance camera equipment to be installed by the International Atomic Energy Agency in an Iranian nuclear facility.
According to Iranian state television, Kamalwandi said in an interview on the same day that Iran had previously put forward three conditions for the International Atomic Energy Agency to replace the damaged monitoring camera equipment in the centrifuge parts manufacturing workshop in the Karadj area, namely, judicial and security investigation into the extent of damage to Iran’s nuclear facilities; International Atomic Energy The agency condemns this sabotage; conducts technical and security inspections of monitoring camera equipment before installation.
He said that Iran’s voluntary license to replace these surveillance cameras was not due to a new agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency, but because the above three conditions were met.
It is reported that an Iranian Atomic Energy Organization building in Karaj, west of Tehran, the Iranian capital, was damaged in June this year. Iran has designated the “destructive operation” as the work of Israel, and Iranian public opinion is dissatisfied that the International Atomic Energy Agency has not condemned the “destructive operation”.
On the 15th of this month, the International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran reached an agreement that the International Atomic Energy Agency will install new monitoring equipment in the centrifuge parts manufacturing workshop in the Karaji area by the end of December this year, in accordance with the date agreed by the two parties, to replace the monitoring equipment removed in the facility earlier this year.
In February this year, Iran reached a temporary technical agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency for up to three months. On May 24, Iran decided to extend the agreement for one month. Under the agreement, the International Atomic Energy Agency installs monitoring equipment in Iran’s nuclear facilities and continues its necessary verification and monitoring activities. Iran will maintain video surveillance information at some nuclear facilities. If the United States lifts sanctions against Iran, Iran will hand over these surveillance information to the International Atomic Energy Agency. On June 25, the International Atomic Energy Agency asked Iran to reply on whether to extend the interim technical agreement again.
