Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told parliament on Tuesday that Iran would allow no online cameras to be installed in its nuclear facilities.
Zarif was also quoted as saying, “I have told the Western diplomats that Iran is capable of making an atom bomb anytime it wills.”
Iranian Defense Minister Brig.-Gen. Hossein Dehgan said Wednesday that international inspectors would not be granted access to military sites under the framework agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
“No such agreement has been reached and basically, visiting military centers are among the red lines and no visit to these centers will be allowed,” Iranian media reported.
He said reports that the deal will allow International Atomic Energy Agency experts to inspect military centers across Iran were “lies” and “deceits.”
Pakistan Reached a Nuclear Weapons Capability with 3,000 Centrifuges
Advocates of the understandings with Iran over its nuclear program point to the fact that it proposes cutting Iran’s 19,000 centrifuges to approximately 5,000, thus limiting its ability to enrich vast quantities of uranium.
But how many centrifuges does a country need to produce atomic weapons?
Pakistan enriched uranium for its first nuclear device with only 3,000 centrifuges. Thus, Iran will be left with enough equipment to go down this route.
