Iran re­fuses in­spec­tions of mil­i­tary sites

The Korea Times - - WORLD - TEHRAN (AFP) —

Iran’s Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani on Tues­day dis­missed the idea of in­spec­tions at its mil­i­tary sites, re­port­edly floated by the United States, say­ing they were not re­quired un­der a nu­clear deal with world pow­ers.

“Our com­mit­ments to the world are clear... our re­la­tions with the IAEA (In­ter­na­tional Atomic En­ergy As­so­ci­a­tion) are defined by rules, not by the U.S.,” Rouhani said in a tele­vised ad­dress. “I see it as un­likely that the IAEA will ac­cept the re­quest for in­spec­tions, but even if they do, we will not,” he said. He was re­spond­ing to me­dia re­ports that Wash­ing­ton’s U.N. en­voy Nikki Ha­ley last week met IAEA chief Yukiya Amano and dis­cussed ac­cess­ing Ira­nian mil­i­tary sites in or­der to en­sure Iran’s com­pli­ance with the 2015 JCPOA deal.
