Mohammad Eslami, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, said that Iran would not reactivate 27 International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) monitoring cameras at its nuclear sites until the United States returns to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. Iran had removed the cameras in June in response to a resolution criticizing it at the June IAEA Board of Governors meeting. Eslami also said that Iran would not cooperate with an IAEA probe investigating traces of uranium found at three undeclared sites, stating that the 2015 deal had already addressed all issues related to "possible military dimensions" of Iran's nuclear program.
