Pompeo calls on Iran to provide IAEA inspectors rights, immunity


US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Friday called on Iran to provide inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with their rights and immunity.

On Wednesday, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) confirmed media reports that it had prevented an IAEA inspector from examining the Natanz plant. According to the AEOI, the security equipment at the facility’s entrance had shown the presence of suspicious materials among the inspector’s belongings.

“IAEA inspectors must be allowed to conduct their critical work unimpeded. We call on Iran to immediately resolve all open issues with the IAEA and to afford Agency inspectors the privileges and immunities to which they are entitled,” Pompeo said in a statement.

Pompeo called the incident “an outrageous and unwarranted act of intimidation.” Iran’s undeclared nuclear materials were discussed at the recent meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors, he noted.  Read More
