UN team have no plans to inspect Iranian nuclear facilities
Tuesday 21 February 2012
A United Nations team visiting Iran have no plans to inspect the country's nuclear facilities but will only hold talks with officials in Tehran, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said today.
Ramin Mehmanparast said the experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency are holding discussions in the capital to “accelerate” co-operation with the UN watchdog. He added that co-operation is at its “best” level.
The two-day IAEA visit, which started yesterday, is the second in less than a month by the UN team amid growing concerns over alleged Iranian weapons experiments.
Yesterday, Iranian radio said the UN team had asked to visit a military complex outside Tehran which is suspected to be a secret weapons-making location.
Iran denies charges by the West that it is developing nuclear weapons.
