Iran undecided on whether to allow IAEA mission
Iran has not made a decision on whether to allow the United Nations nuclear agency to send a mission to address concerns that it had tested designs used to make an atomic weapon, the country's envoy to the international watchdog said on Saturday, dpa reported.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) made the request on Thursday when its board approved a resolution calling on Iran to address concerns about military dimensions to its nuclear programme.
"The visit was supposed to take place before the IAEA board meeting and therefore the request by the IAEA general director to dispatch the inspection team should first be examined again by Tehran," Ali Asghar Soltanieh said Saturday told ISNA news agency.
The IAEA said in a report last week that Iran had worked on designing a nuclear weapon.
