He added that his country “greatly appreciates the willingness of the two sides to maintain a constructive dialogue based on mutual respect, through which all matters in suspended can be resolved “.

Ensure continuous monitoring of the nuclear program

In a joint statement between the Atomic Energy Agency and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, reported by the state agency IRNA, “the agency’s inspectors were authorized to perform technical and technical maintenance of the specified monitoring and replace memory cards for these devices, which will be stamped by both parties and kept in Iran”.
