  • U.S. says International Atomic Energy Agency Raises Deeply Troubling Issues at Special Meeting of the Board of Governors

    U.S. says International Atomic Energy Agency Raises Deeply Troubling Issues at Special Meeting of the Board of Governors | site |



    (November 8, 2019) - - Today, the U.S. Department of State published the following statement made by U.S. Secretary of State Michael R.

The IAEA announced it detected evidence of potential undeclared nuclear materials in Iran. Iran has no plausible explanation for the detected materials and must explain where these nuclear materials came from and where they are now. We also learned earlier this week that Iran had detained an IAEA inspector. This is an outrageous and unwarranted act of intimidation. The United States fully supports the IAEA’s monitoring and verification activi
