The United States calls an emergency meeting involving a nuclear watchdog, the United Nations (UN), to discuss Iran’s issue, US special representative told the agency yesterday after Tehran violated a nuclear power deal with power in 2015.
Any Board of Governors from 35 member states can call on the meeting and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed that the meeting will take place on Wednesday, 2.30 pm (local time).
It was made after the IAEA claimed that Iran had surpassed the maximum stock of uranium enrichment allowed under the agreement.
“Today, the US ambassador to Vienna International Organization, Jackie Wolcott asks for a special meeting of the Board called on to discuss the latest report by the IAEA Director-General on nuclear program of the Iranian regime,” the US representative said in a statement.
“The Iranian regime needs to be accountable.”
The IAEA is responsible for confirming sanctions on Iran’s nuclear activities imposed under the treaty, which also withdraws international sanctions against Tehran.
In addition to Iran and the United States, the 2015 nuclear alliance deal with Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany. All five countries are working to continue the agreement.
