Iran: No IAEA demand for military site inspection
The director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano has not submitted any request for inspection of Iranian military sites, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said. He made the remarks during a joint press conference with Amano in Tehran Oct. 29, Trend reports citing the state-run IRINN TV.
Amano came to Iran at his own request, Salehi said, adding that this occurred while the US President Donald Trump has created a sensitive condition by his stance regarding the nuclear deal signed between Tehran and six world powers in 2015.
He said that he has held good negotiations with the IAEA head, underling that Amano's trip at this sensitive juncture has a specific message and IAEA's role is fully certain in this regard.
According to Salehi, Amano will discuss serious issues with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani during his scheduled meeting. Amano is determined to play his important role in this sensitive period, he said.
