International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi said that the Iranian government had revoked the credentials of about one-third of the Agency's group of inspectors stationed in Iran, preventing some of its most experienced personnel from monitoring the Iranian nuclear program. Grossi condemned the move and said it "constitutes an unnecessary blow to an already strained relationship between the IAEA and Iran.”
