in Program

Cindy Vestergaard, a senior researcher at Danish Institute for International Studies and a nonresident fellow at the Stimson Centre, says the Additional Protocol to the NPT “does not mean that the IAEA can access military sites that are unrelated to nuclear activity.”

The Additional Protocol “means if there is suspicion of undeclared nuclear activities, particularly any related to weaponisation, the IAEA has the right to request access,” Vestergaard tells the Tehran Times.

Vestergaard says the protocol is nothing new and “as of today 125 states have an additional protocol in force”.
