The head of the United Nations’ atomic watchdog agency said Monday that Iran must provide inspectors access to sites where the country is thought to have stored undeclared nuclear material. International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mariano Grossi said he had made his case with “Iranian authorities at higher levels”.

He added that for more than four months “Iran has denied us access to two locations and that, for almost a year, it has not engaged in substantive discussions to clarify our questions related to possible undeclared nuclear material and nuclear-related activities”.

Iran says the IAEA has no legal basis to inspect the locations. Activities at the two sites and a third are thought to have been from the early 2000s, before Iran signed the 2015 nuclear deal.
