FRANCE 24 English

"Iran does not have nuclear weapons, but it has certain nuclear capabilities that are a source of concern," International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Rafael Grossi tells FRANCE 24 in a wide-ranging interview also touching on security concerns in Ukraine and North Korea. Turning to the upcoming COP28, The UN Climate Change Conference, Mr. Grossi was thrilled to share the key role nuclear energy has been playing in the world's efforts to protect the environment, battle climate change and transition to cleaner energy across the globe. "For the first time, at the COP, the countries that use nuclear energy are going to say, 'nuclear energy is part of the solution we really need.'"
