No reason for IAEA to delay Zaporizhzhia NPP visit - Zakharova

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Radio Sputnik on Wednesday that she does not understand what is stopping the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) delegation from visiting the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

The spokeswoman highlighted that the complicated situation in Ukraine did not prevent United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres from scheduling a visit to the country, while no one seems to be in a rush to resolve threats at the nuclear power plant site. Zakharova warned that "it is of particular concern the Kiev regime and the armed formations controlled by it pretend that they do not understand what is at stake and continue to strike [the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant]."

Previously, the spokeswoman noted that Moscow will do everything it can to provide IAEA officials with a chance to visit the site.
