International Atomic Energy Agency head Rafael Grossi with Mohammad Eslami, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Tehran, March 4, 2023

Listen from 5:28

I summarize the issues including the discovery of 83.7% enriched uranium; historical inspections of uranium found at undeclared sites; and Iran’s confiscation of video, removal of cameras, and denial of access to sites and individuals.

I add the caution that, in contrast to IAEA head Rafael Grossi’s declaration of the agreement, Iranian officials are already putting out caveats.
