GOV'T. RE­JECTS US DE­MAND TO IN­SPECT MIL­I­TARY SITES

Sun.Star Cebu - - WORLD -

Iran has dis­missed U.S. de­mands for the in­spec­tion of its mil­i­tary sites by the U.N. nu­clear watch­dog, shrug­ging off the re­quest by US Am­bas­sador to the U.N. Nikki Ha­ley as only a “dream.” Gov­ern­ment spokesman Mo­ham­mad Bagher Nobakht said Ha­ley ‘s de­mand wasn’t worth any at­ten­tion. Iran will not ac­cept any in­spec­tion of its sites and “es­pe­cially our mil­i­tary sites.” In re­marks broad­cast by state TV, he said the sites and all in­for­ma­tion about them are “clas­si­fied.” Ha­ley had said the United States wants in­spec­tions of Ira­nian mil­i­tary and non-mil­i­tary sites to de­ter­mine its com­pli­ance with the land­mark 2015 nu­clear deal be­tween Iran and world pow­ers. The deal saw Iran cap its nu­clear ac­tiv­i­ties in re­turn for lift­ing of crip­pling sanc­tions. /
