Iran’s Ayatollah regime has refused to provide the images of its nuclear sites to the International Atomic Energy Agency. On Sunday, Iranian officials announced they will no longer be sharing data about their nuclear program with the IAEA because a temporary monitoring agreement has expired.

“The agreement has expired…any of the information recorded will never be given to the International Atomic Energy Agency and the data and image will remain in the possession of Iran,” said Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf.

This comes as Iran is pressuring Joe Biden to restore the failed 2015 nuclear deal and lift economic sanctions. Tehran said it would resume the sharing of its nuclear data only after the 2015 deal was restored.

However, experts have said even if the deal is restored, Iran may continue to violate United Nations resolutions.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken (D) said a failure of extension would be a “serious concern” for future negotiations. International inspectors have since reached out to Iran, asking to extend the temporary monitoring accord, but so far have not received a response.
