The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has asked Iran again to explain why traces of enriched uranium were found at nuclear research sites that Iran had not told the world about three years ago.

“Give us the necessary answers, people and places so we can clarify the many things needed for clarification,” said IAEA director-general Rafael Grossi on Monday, reported CNN.

Inspectors also discovered information regarding equipment in locations that had not been declared as sites of nuclear activities.

CNN asked Grossi if the IAEA would close the probe without adequate answers, and Grossi replied: “Absolutely not. We want to be able to clarify these things. So far Iran has not given us the technically credible explanations we need to explain the origin of many traces of uranium, the presence of equipment at places.”

He responded that “this idea that politically, we are going to stop doing our job is unacceptable for us.”
