The head of the UN nuclear watchdog has urged world powers to relaunch talks with Iran and not lose sight of the risks posed by its stockpiling of enriched uranium while attention has turned to the war between Israel and Hamas, APA reports citing Financial Times.

“There needs to be some recreation of a system of dialogue with Iran,” Rafael Grossi, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told the Financial Times.

“Attention . . . may of course be on something else. But this doesn’t solve the issue. It may even make them more acute, in the sense that there’s a sense of a certain indifference,” Grossi said. “People may not be looking at [Iran’s nuclear ambitions], but the problem exists.”

He also said the situation surrounding Iran’s nuclear programme was “very uncertain” and urged nations to “sit down and re-engage”.
