The IAEA "has done a very good job" with its thorough inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities and a "switch of one or two people" even in its senior leadership is not going to affect its operations, Peter Galbraith, the former U.S. ambassador to Croatia and author of several books on the Middle East, told RT.
The transfer comes simply days after U.S. President Donald Trump introduced the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord created to maintain Tehran's atomic weapons program in examine.
"The Agency's verification activities will continue to be at the professional level", - said the press Secretary of the IAEA.
Varjoranta is Finnish and had previously served as head of Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority.
The spokesperson, however, said the replacement had been made on a temporary basis and a permanent replacement would be appointed as soon as possible.
President Donald Trump had announced at the White House that the United States would be withdrawing from the deal, and unilaterally begin reinstating economic sanctions against Iran at "the highest level".
Kaveh Afrasiabi, the former adviser to Iran's nuclear-negotiating team noted, as he spoke about the reshuffle, that "there's a history of bullying powers trying to influence the IAEA". "As of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran", said Yukiya Amano, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), refering to the deal.
Since the accord was reached in 2015, the IAEA has carried out hundreds of inspections inside Iran.
The Vienna-based nuclear company says it has no indications Iran is in breach of the accord.
The agency also points to the some 2,000 tamper-proof seals attached to nuclear material and equipment and to the "hundreds of thousands of images captured daily by our sophisticated surveillance cameras", the number of which has nearly doubled since 2013.
