Iran rejects US demand for inspection of its military sites

02 September 2017

Iran's stock of low-enriched uranium as of August 21 was 88.4 kilograms, well below a 202.8kg limit, and the level of enrichment did not exceed a 3.67 percent cap, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency report sent to IAEA member states.

Officials at the UN agency told Reuters that despite the us demand that it inspect military sites, the United States has presented no new evidence of possible violations of the nuclear accord that could justify such a move.

Iran stuck by its nuclear deal with world powers by keeping its uranium stockpile and production capacity below set thresholds, according to United Nations inspectors.

The president added that Iran has always called for establishing friendly ties with its neighboring countries and has good ties with nearly all of them. So far they do not, officials say. Though Trump has twice recertified the agreement, he said he would not do it a third time when recertification comes up again in October.

"I can not speak for the government of the United States of America". Haley said those inspections are a central requirement of the JCPOA.

While the United States was pushing the UN nuclear inspectors to check military sites in Iran to verify it is not breaching its nuclear deal with world powers, the IAEA declared on Thursday that the Islamic Republic is living up to its JCPOA commitments.

"The Americans will take their dream of visiting our military and sensitive sites to their graves". Iranian officials from President Hassan Rouhani down have rejected that option, with government spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht this week dismissing any push for military inspections as a "dream".

Haley, in a statement Thursday, said that if "inspections of Iranian military sites are 'merely a dream, ' then Iranian compliance ....is also a dream".

IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano frequently describes his Vienna-based agency as a technical rather than a political one, underscoring the need for its work to be based on facts alone.

IAEA officials said they would not help the Trump administration make a false case for abandoning the agreement.

The issue of inspections is likely to emerge as a key battleground in the struggle over the fate of the nuclear deal.

IAEA experts normally do the work of swiping equipment and sampling the soil and air at sites they suspect was used for hidden nuclear activities.

Daryl Kimball, the head of the Arms Control Association, argued that the IAEA was already policing Section T.

"Haley was correct in saying that 'the IAEA is permitted to seek access to any location in Iran, including military-affiliated sites, where the IAEA has questions about possible nuclear-related activities, '" Mark Fitzpatrick, a nuclear expert with the International Institute for Strategic Studies, told Al-Monitor.
