Iran used stolen documents to deceive the International Atomic Energy Agency, and continues lying to the world, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned on Tuesday, May 31, ahead of the UN atomic agency’s board meeting next week.
IAEA Director-General Rafael Grossi released a report to the agency’s Board of Governors a day earlier estimating that Iran already has enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon, 18 times more than the 2015 deal with world powers permitted.
The IAEA has been investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program and nuclear sites that the Islamic Republic has not disclosed. One of Iran’s demands in negotiations to renew the nuclear deal was to close the probe.
“Iran has not provided explanations that are technically credible in relation to the Agency’s findings at those locations,” Grossi wrote. “The Agency cannot confirm the correctness and completeness of Iran’s declarations under its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement.”
The future of the IAEA investigation is expected to come up at its Board of Governors meeting on June 6. (JPost/ VFI News)
“Lord, we pray that you will continue to expose Iran’s deceit and that you bring their actions to a halt.”
