Grossi, the energetic Argentine diplomat who has spent the past year trying to restore nuclear talks with Tehran and create a safety and security zone around the besieged Zaporizhzhia plant in Ukraine, was reappointed by consensus in the 35-member board. This came only a day after Grossi delivered his most impassioned words about the situation in Ukraine. An incident this week was "the sixth time, let me say it again, SIXTH time," that Europe's largest nuclear plant "lost all off-site power and has had to operate in this emergency mode," said Grossi. "What are we doing? How can we sit here in this room this morning and allow this to happen?" Grossi must also continue to negotiate a safeguards arrangement for the plan to sell US and UK nuclear-powered submarines to Australia, further details of which will be released on Monday, Mar. 13, during a trilateral US-UK-Australia summit in San Diego.
