Iran-IAEA cooperation 

The UN nuclear watchdog confirms that it has closed two outstanding inquiries into Iran’s nuclear program. The International Atomic Energy Agency says inspectors no longer have questions on uranium particles found to be enriched to over 83 percent at Fordow nuclear site. The agency also said in its quarterly report that investigators have also closed off their probe of traces of human-made uranium at Marivan site. According to the report, the IAEA has re-installed some monitoring equipment originally put in place under the 2015 deal between Iran and six major powers. Tehran has repeatedly called on the UN body to avoid politicizing issues under the pressure of Israel and western powers.

Israeli maneuvers

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman says Israel’s struggle to expand its regional presence will not help the regime mend its unstable internal bases. Nasser Kan’ani made the remarks a day after the Israeli president met with his Azerbaijani counterpart in a trip to the Caucasian country. Kan’ani drew a comparison between the Israeli regime and what he called the spider web, saying Tel Aviv cannot be reliable. He said people around the world detest the Israeli regime, adding that there’s no future for it. Kan’ani also noted that Tehran is observing Israel’s regional maneuverings. 

Sudan conflict 

A Sudanese government official says the country's army has suspended its participation in the Saudi-backed truce talks with the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces. The official said the decision was taken in the light of repeated breach of ceasefire by the paramilitary group. He said the RSF also failed to implement a provision which required their withdrawal from hospitals and residential buildings. The new development comes after US and Saudi mediators on Sunday announced that the warring sides had agreed to extend a humanitarian truce by another five days. Despite peace efforts, fighting continued unabated in the African country, with the army and the RSF trading blame over truce violations. Violence broke out in the country in mid-April over the proposed integration of the RSF into the regular army. Hundreds of people have lost their lives ever since.
