Iran inspections should not be ‘bargaining chip’, IAEA says

The head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog appeals for its inspection work in Iran not to become a “bargaining chip” as world powers mull negotiations to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

“The inspection work of the IAEA must be preserved… (it) should not be put in the middle of a negotiating table as a bargaining chip,” International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Chief Rafael Grossi tells a press conference at the start of the agency’s quarterly meeting of its board of governors.
