• Rafael Grossi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), arrived in Iran on Monday for talks aimed at reviving cooperation over Tehran’s nuclear program.

  • Grossi’s visit comes as the IAEA has expressed growing concerns over Iran’s nuclear activities, including the production of highly enriched uranium and the installation of advanced centrifuges.

  • The IAEA has faced difficulties in monitoring Iran’s nuclear program due to Tehran’s decision to remove some of the agency’s monitoring equipment and limit inspections.

  • Grossi aims to revitalize cooperation with Iran and ensure the IAEA’s ability to monitor the country’s nuclear activities.

  • The visit comes as efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers have stalled, with both sides accusing each other of not being flexible enough.

  • The IAEA has reported that Iran has enriched uranium to 60% purity, a short technical step away from weapons-grade levels of 90%.

  • Iran has insisted that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes, but Western nations have expressed skepticism over these claims.

  • Infobae reported that the IAEA has denounced almost daily military activities near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, raising concerns about the safety of the facility.
