The UN nuclear watchdog, IAEA’s 35-nation board of governors passed a resolution yesterday criticizing Iran for failing to explain uranium traces at undeclared sites.
The resolution was submitted by the UK, France, Germany and the US to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and was backed by 30 countries. Only Russia and China opposed the move.
However, Iran condemned the resolution. In a statement Iranian Foreign Ministry said, Tehran had been cooperating with international nuclear investigators. Iran had said, it disconnected two IAEA cameras which monitor its nuclear sites prior to the adoption of the resolution.
The motion is the first to chide Iran over its nuclear ambitions since 2020. It comes as talks to revive the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) remain stalled.
