U.N. nuclear chief urges immediate access to Iran site
Good luck with that.
(Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog chief pressed Iran on Monday to grant his inspectors immediate access to the Parchin military site, where they believe Tehran may have conducted explosives tests relevant to the development of nuclear weapons.
Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, also said the IAEA and Iran had made no concrete progress in talks that began in January aimed at allaying concern about suspected atom bomb research in the Islamic state.
Western powers may seize on his statement to a closed-door session of the IAEA’s 35-nation governing board to strengthen their case for further increasing international pressure on Tehran, one of the world’s largest oil producers.
