IAEA - Q&A - (02 Mar. 2022)


Q: Are you afraid that support for the IAEA Board’s Ukraine resolution condemning the Russian invasion will complicate negotiations on Iran, in which Russia plays an important role?

A: Today’s session of the IAEA Board of Governors and the resolution that will be discussed during that session cover very specific, targeted subjects: the security and safety of nuclear facilities and the Agency’s activities relating to guarantees in Ukraine. These subjects are entirely separate from the Vienna negotiations on the United States’ return to the JCPoA and Iran’s compliance with its commitments under that agreement.
