Iran refuses to allow inspection of Parchin nuclear site

NICOSIA — Iran, despite its agreement with the West, continues to deny international inspectors access to a key nuclear military site.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization has rejected appeals by NATO states for the inspection of the Parchin military site southeast of Teheran.

The Iranian government body said the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) would not be granted access to Parchin, believed to have hosted nuclear warhead experiments.

“Inspection of Parchin is not within the framework of these seven steps,” Iranian Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said.

IAEA has been denied access to Parchin since 2005. The United Nations agency has voiced concerns that Iran conducted high-explosive experiments required in the development of a nuclear warhead.
