Israel calls out nuclear watchdog, accuses it of making ‘extremely dangerous’ deal with Iran

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) closed two investigations into Iran’s nuclear program this week after dramatically limiting monitoring equipment installed at Iranian sites.

The Israelis have expressed frustration with the IAEA over what they see as lax enforcement that could lead to Iran obtaining dangerous nuclear materials. The IAEA was working to reinstall monitoring equipment that Iran ordered removed after it withdrew from its 2015 nuclear deal, but the organization only installed a small amount of equipment.

The IAEA also agreed to close two investigations into aspects of Iran’s nuclear program as part of negotiations to reinstall monitoring equipment. Israeli officials called the decision myopic.

“Closing the case could have extremely dangerous consequences, and it sends a message to the Iranians that they are not required to pay the price for their violations and that they can continue to deceive the international community on their way to the achievement of a full military nuclear program,” an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday.
