Russian envoy:
Technical understandings between Iran, IAEA not officially extended yet

Technical understandings between The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Tehran have not been officially extended yet, permanent representative of Russia to international organizations in Vienna, tweeted.

Iran PressEurope: "Under the circumstances, it is important to ensure that video cameras at nuclear sites continue to work and video records are preserved. This will allow avoiding problems in the future," Mikhail Ulyanov highlighted.

"Deputy Director-General and Head of the Department of Safeguards of the IAEA, Massimo Aparo, will visit Iran in coming days," the Iranian Ambassador to International Organisations in Vienna, Kazem Gharibabadi tweeted.

"Continued contacts and dialogue between Iran and the IAEA are of paramount importance, especially at this stage when we can expect full restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the lifting of sanctions soon," Ulyanov said retweeting the post.

"He's also a designated inspector. The purpose of the visit is in line with routine safeguards activities in the context of the CSA. Although we are in continuous contact, there are no pre-planned talks in Tehran during the visit," Gharibabadi noted.

The visit comes nearly 10 days after the expiration of a deal between Tehran and international nuclear inspectors to preserve video data at the country’s atomic installations.
