Biden Administration “pleased” that EU dropped censure of Iran
Iran also “welcomed” the US-backed decision by European powers to drop their plan to denounce Iran’s suspension of UN watchdog’s snap inspections of nuclear sites. The motion was to have been submitted at this week’s meeting of the IAEA’s board of governors. The State Department’s Ned Price said the US was pleased with the European move and looked forward to “Iran’s willingness to engage in a way that leads to credible, concrete progress.”
Tehran showed no sign of backing down on its decision to hobble UN inspections and earlier rebuffed an EU offer of informal direct talks on its nuclear program after US acceptance.
