The United States at the UN General Assembly will discuss Iran’s idea to revoke the accreditation of IAEA inspectors.

The United States at the UN General Assembly in New York will discuss with partners, including Britain, France, Germany and other countries, Iran’s decision to revoke the accreditation of IAEA inspectors, a senior US administration official said.

“We will be communicating with our partners – Britain, France, Germany and others – this coming week in New York,” he told reporters at a special briefing on Iran, commenting on Iran’s decision to revoke the accreditation of several IAEA inspectors.

The White House added that the United States is in “very active coordination” with partners, and Washington will make a statement on this topic in the coming days.

The IAEA said Saturday that Iran has decided to revoke the accreditation of several agency inspectors involved in inspections at Iran’s nuclear facilities under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Safeguards Agreement. The organization called on Iran to reconsider the decision.


Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said that the Iranian side has the right to refuse accreditation to IAEA inspectors on the basis of Article 9 of the NPT Safeguards Agreement.
