This is stated in the message of the Kremlin. 

“The presidents noted the importance of sending an IAEA mission to the nuclear power plant as soon as possible, which would be able to assess the real situation on the spot,” the Kremlin said.

Putin confirmed Russia's readiness to provide the mission's inspectors with the necessary assistance. 

The conversation took place at the initiative of Macron.

The parties discussed various aspects of the situation around Ukraine.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres said earlier that the visit of IAEA experts to the Zaporozhye NPP is possible through Kyiv.
