Iranian authorities have confirmed that the secretary general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, could pay a visit to Tehran in February and stressed that «it is on the agenda».

The director general of the Atomic Energy Agency of Iran (AEOI), Mohamad Eslami, pointed out that the matter «is being followed up» and stressed that relations between Tehran and the international organization «will continue», as reported by the Iranian news agency IRNA.

Grossi advanced on Tuesday that he could make a trip to Iran in February for «a much-needed political dialogue,» amid efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, damaged after the US decision to unilaterally abandon it in 2018.

«As of today it is an empty agreement. No one has declared it dead, but none of the obligations it contains are fulfilled and every limit contained in the agreement has been violated on several occasions,» he lamented, before insisting that Iran enriches uranium to 60 percent, that is at the weapons level.

For all these reasons, and after explaining that Teheran maintains that it is not obliged to follow the agreement as long as the United States does not lift its sanctions, Grossi stressed that «Iran’s level of commitment and implementation of the nuclear agreement is zero».
