IAEA Access to Iran Nuclear Site Remains Elusive


iaea-iranThe International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog, appears no closer to finding out what happened at the Parchin base southeast of Tehran which is at the center of its investigation into suspected atom bomb research by Iran. U.S. officials say it is vital for Iran to answer IAEA questions if Western powers are to reach a broader nuclear settlement with Iran.

An IAEA report on Friday said satellite images showed “ongoing construction activities” at Parchin. “The activity at Parchin gives ample reason for continued concern that Iran may be trying to remove any remaining vestiges of nuclear-related experiments,” said Mark Fitzpatrick, director of the non-proliferation program at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.
