UK, France, Germany condemn Iran for limiting international inspections

Britain, France and Germany say they “deeply regret” Iran’s decision to restrict site inspections by the UN’s nuclear watchdog after a US refusal to lift existing sanctions.

The three European signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran say they are “united in underlining the dangerous nature of this decision.”

“It will significantly constrain the (International Atomic Energy Agency’s) access to sites and to safeguards-relevant information,” they add.
