Iran has turned off some cameras at a nuclear facility in response to a draft resolution to censure Tehran introduced by the United States and its European allies at the UN nuclear watchdog.

A statement released by Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEO) said that while Iran has wide-ranging cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran’s cooperation was due to its “good intentions” and the IAEA assumed this cooperation was Iran’s “duty.” As a result, Iran has decided to shut off completely two cameras belonging to the IAEA at the Online Enrichment Monitor (OLEM) and the flowmeter system. It did not state at which nuclear site this action was taken.
