Iran retaliates; International surveillance agency turns off cameras at nuclear plants
Tehran has shut down several cameras installed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) at its nuclear plants following a resolution condemning it by Western nations.
According to Al Jazeera, Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AIOI) has announced that it has installed Online Enrichment Monitor (OLEM) at an undisclosed nuclear location and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The flow meter system is turned off.
The AEOI statement added that more than 80% of the current IAEA cameras come under security agreement and that is why they remain operational at all times.
The organization said the IAEA had been notified of the move.
The Western-backed resolution on Iran’s nuclear program expressed “deep concern” in two classified IAEA intelligence reports released last week.
He said Iran’s possession of 60 percent enriched uranium, 2,000 state-of-the-art centrifuges and expanded research was a matter of grave concern and “fueling mistrust of Iran’s intentions.”
