iaeaDirector General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano says Iran has invited the agency to visit the Arak heavy-water production plant on December 8.

“I can inform the board that we have received an invitation from Iran to visit the Heavy Water Production Plant at

Arak on 8 December,” Amano told a regular, closed-door meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna, Austria, on Thursday.

The text of his speech was released by the agency.

He was speaking at a regular, closed-door meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna, Austria.

Iran’s invitation to the IAEA comes after Tehran and the UN nuclear body signed a joint statement earlier this month under which Tehran agreed, on a voluntary basis, to allow IAEA inspectors to visit the Arak heavy-water plant.

“This joint statement outlines a roadmap that clarifies bilateral cooperation on the outstanding issues,” Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said in a joint press conference with Amano after the signing of the agreement in Tehran on November 11.

He added that the statement included an annex with six articles, adding that Tehran’s cooperation with the IAEA was within the framework of the Safeguards Agreement.
