Iran says it switched off 2 of UN watchdog’s surveillance cameras at nuclear site

Iran turned off two surveillance cameras of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog that monitored one of its atomic sites, Iranian state television reported Wednesday.

The television report described the two International Atomic Energy Agency cameras as monitoring “OLEM enrichment levels and flowmeters.”

That appeared to refer to the IAEA’s Online Enrichment Monitors, which watch the enrichment of uranium gas through piping at enrichment facilities.

The report did not identify the site, but Iran currently is enriching at both its Fordo and Natanz underground nuclear sites.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has so far had extensive cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency,” the TV report said. “Unfortunately, the agency, without considering this cooperation… not only did not appreciate this cooperation, but also considered it as a duty of Iran.”
