Samples taken at Parchin with no IAEA inspectors present

TEHRAN, Sep. 21 (MNA) – AEOI spokeman said the environmental samples from the Parchin military site have been taken by Iranian experts and without the IAEA’s inspectors being present.

Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told IRNA on Monday that in line with Iran and the IAEA cooperation, Iranian experts took environmental samples from specific locations at Parchin complex without the presence of the Agency’s inspectors by observing all relevant regulations and standards.

He added that the collected data was then presented to the Agency’s inspectors.

Kamalvandi noted that the sample-taking procedure followed recent talks between Iran and the IAEA on mutual cooperation within the framework of a roadmap the two sides agreed upon in July.

“Following the AEOI-IAEA cooperation within the framework of the roadmap, IAEA experts traveled to Iran last week and held several technical and legal meetings to discuss the remaining questions and issues,” said the AEOI official.

He described the meetings as “constructive” and “based on mutual cooperation,” adding that the two sides have decided to continue the cooperation for the next weeks until October 15 as indicated by the roadmap.

Last Wednesday, the two-day expert meetings between Iran and the IAEA wrapped up. The talks are expected to continue in late September.
