Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul issued the following statement regarding the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi’s comments at the IAEA Board of Governor’s (BoG) meeting. In his opening remarks, the director general highlighted Iran’s continued non-compliance with NPT-required Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement with the IAEA.

“The IAEA Director General’s statement today further emphasizes the need for drastic action, including at the IAEA, to ensure Iran is held to its treaty obligations. The international community’s failure to hold Iran accountable for its continued nuclear violations undermines non-proliferation efforts around the world. The Biden administration must seek a finding of non-compliance and refer Iran’s nuclear violations to the U.N. Security Council, as I called for back in March. We cannot let Iran’s continued nuclear escalation go unpunished.”
