Iranian Regime Denies UN Inspectors Access to Key Military Site
The UN atomic agency said Wednesday that “intensive efforts” by its team visiting Iran on the way forward failed, and that they were denied access to a key military site.
”Intensive efforts were made to reach agreement on a document facilitating the clarification of unresolved issues in connection with Iran’s nuclear programme,” the International Atomic Energy Agency said.
”Unfortunately, agreement was not reached on this document.”
The team requested access both during this visit and during a first trip in late January to the Parchin military site where it suspects suspicious nuclear activities are carried out, but Iran ”did not grant permission,” it said.
”It is disappointing that Iran did not accept our request to visit Parchin during the first or second meetings,” IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said in the statement.
”We engaged in a constructive spirit, but no agreement was reached.”
