Saturday, 09. November 2019 02:53

United States Secretary of State slammed Iran for briefly detaining an inspector from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and revoking her accreditation.

Pompeo accused Tehran of "intimidation" of the official and called its actions "outrageous."

On Thursday, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) stated it revoked the accreditation of the inspector after she set off an alarm at an entrance to the Natanz uranium enrichment plant last week. Tehran denied claims that the inspector was detained and added she tested positive for explosive nitrates.
