"IAEA inspectors must be allowed to conduct their critical work unimpeded. We call on Iran to immediately resolve all open issues with the IAEA and to afford Agency inspectors the privileges and immunities to which they are entitled," Pompeo said in a statement, APA reports citing Sputnik.
Pompeo called the incident "an outrageous and unwarranted act of intimidation."
Iran’s undeclared nuclear materials were discussed at the recent meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors, he noted.
"Iran has no plausible explanation for the detected materials and must explain where these nuclear materials came from and where they are now," Pompeo said.
