Deputy Director General and head of nuclear inspections of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, Finnish Tero Varjaranta, resigns.
The departure takes place with immediate effect and without any explanation given. It also happens three days after the US decided to abandon the nuclear agreement with Iran, despite the fact that the IAEA repeatedly stated that Iran follows it. It was announced as late as Wednesday, the day after the US President Donald Trump's message.
Tero Varjaranta will until now be replaced by the head of the IAEA Iran office, Massimo Aparo.
