United Nations’ nuclear watchdog and Iran have reached a deal to reinstall cameras damaged at an Iranian site that manufactures centrifuge parts. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it has been given access once again by Iran to a centrifuge parts manufacturing facility in Karaj to replace cameras that were damaged or destroyed when the site was targeted by a sabotage attack in June this year.

IAEA Director-General Rafael Mariano Grossi said, this is important for verification under the Iran nuclear deal, and work will continue to address other outstanding safeguards issues.

The IAEA said the cameras would be reinstalled at Karaj in the ncoming days. The agency and Iran will continue to work on remaining outstanding safeguards issues with the aim of resolving them.

As part of today’s deal, the IAEA would make available a sample camera and related technical information to Iran for analysis by its relevant security and judiciary officials, in the presence of the agency inspectors. However, Iran still will keep all recordings from the cameras - part of another ongoing dispute between the agency and Tehran sparked by the nuclear deal’s collapse.

Negotiations continue in Vienna over trying to restore the nuclear deal.  The US has remained outside of direct talks since abandoning the accord.
