The United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has accused Iran of rebuilding underground nuclear power plants. The agency’s director general, Rafael Gracie, made the remarks in an interview with The Associated Press.
After Donald Trump came to power as president, the US withdrew from the nuclear deal signed in 2015 and imposed new sanctions on Iran. The other five signatories are the United Kingdom, China, Russia, Germany and France. Meanwhile, Iran’s nuclear plant caught fire in July last year. Iran, without naming anyone, claimed that the plot was set on fire. This time again the United Nations has revealed that they are building nuclear power plants.
Rafael Gracie, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told the AP: The country has also started stocking uranium. But they still do not have uranium to make nuclear weapons.
Iran has been negotiating a nuclear deal for a long time. In 2002, the first satellite image captured Iran’s nuclear power plant. The Western world is concerned about this. In 2003, representatives of the United Nations visited Iran’s nuclear reactor. He told that the nuclear power plant was built 7.6 meters below the ground. Arrangements have also been made so that air strikes do not harm the center. Anti-aircraft missiles have been deployed throughout the region.
A nuclear deal was signed in 2015 to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It said that Iran could not manufacture nuclear weapons even if it could conduct nuclear research. The agreement also states that no more than a certain amount of uranium can be deposited. But the US has long claimed that Iran is secretly developing nuclear weapons. However, no evidence has yet been revealed.
