IAEA adopts resolution censuring Iran for nuclear program, diplomats say

The International Atomic Energy Agency says it has adopted a resolution formally criticizing Iran for a lack of cooperation with the UN nuclear inspectorate, diplomatic sources tell AFP.

The motion brought by the United States, Britain, France and Germany — but voted against by Russia and China — is the first to criticize Iran since June 2020 and comes amid an impasse on efforts to bring the US back into a 2015 deal over Iran’s nuclear program.

It is a sign of growing Western impatience after talks to revive the 2015 landmark nuclear accord with Iran stalled in March.

However, the motion is largely symbolic and does not threaten any specific actions from world powers against Iran.
