Iranian envoy to the Vienna-based international organizations Kazem Gharib-Abadi

Iran's envoy to the Vienna-based international organizations said under the circumstances of the coronavirus outbreak, the activities of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors in Iran can continue without restriction unless the organization makes another decision for its own.

Iran Press/Europe: In response to a claim of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Kazem Gharib-Abadi on Thursday 19 March emphasized that transparency in Iran's nuclear program is not due to verification and inspection, but is rooted in Iranian fundamental policy, adding that transparency will remain with or without verification.

In a recent article, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists had claimed that the coronavirus crisis could raise concerns about Iran's nuclear intentions and the proliferation risks.  

The nuclear scientists' bulletin claims are made while the IAEA has so far confirmed 16 reports of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities and Tehran's adherence to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
