Iran has come to an agreement with the international nuclear watchdog to service their monitoring equipment. Reports on Sunday said the inspectors with the International Atomic Energy Agency will be allowed to install new memory cards into surveillance cameras at Iran’s nuclear sites.

The storage media is set to be held by Tehran, meaning the watchdog would not have access to the data gathered. However, the watchdog called the move “concrete results” in the continuity of the operation of the agency’s equipment.

It “is indispensable for us to provide the necessary guarantee and information to the IAEA and to the world that everything is in order,” stated the director general of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi.

Meanwhile in February, Iran denied the IAEA access to their inspection equipment. This comes amid reports that Iran has greatly exceeded the amount of highly enriched uranium in its stockpiling.
