Media reports that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has recognized Palestine as a state by signing a safeguards agreement with it are wrong. The conclusion of a safeguards agreement does not imply the expression by the IAEA of any opinion regarding the status of Palestine and doesn’t affect its status in the IAEA. Media reports suggesting otherwise are wrong.
