IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi warned Iran that it is not being transparent enough about its nuclear activities. He said that in the last few months traces of enriched uranium were found in places that have never been declared by Iran as places where any activity was taking place. 

In 2015, Iran signed the JCPOA with the P5+1 group (the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany). However, President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the deal in May 2018 and re-imposed sanctions on Iran, leading to Iran gradually reneging on some of its commitments.
