IAEA begins Iran inspections
TEHRAN: An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team has begun a crucial round of inspections in Iran after reaching an accord with Iranian officials on a list of sites to visit, a top Iranian diplomat said on Monday.
And in a further sign that Iran was working to comply with an IAEA ultimatum over its suspect nuclear programme, Iran’s representative to the IAEA Ali Akbar Salehi also said the Islamic republic had begun divulging details of its nuclear equipment imports.
“The experts from the IAEA presented us a list of sites, and we arrived at a bilateral agreement on the sites the inspectors wished to visit,” Salehi, said. “The inspections have now begun.”
Salahi did not say whether or not Iran had agreed to open up for visits all of the sites. —AFP
