Iran says no separate agreement signed on inspecting Parchin military base
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 24
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: No separate agreement based on the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers has been made on inspecting Parchin military site, said Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.
Any inspection will be conducted according to the agreement with the IAEA, Iran's parliament news agency, ICANA, quoted Salehi as saying July 24.
Parchin military base, located near the capital city of Tehran, is where the UN body suspects Iran has conducted nuclear-related tests.
An agreement has been made with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), based on which the inspections will be carried out, Salehi said, adding that the Iranian Supreme National Security Council is aware of the agreement.
That was while Yukiya Amano, the director general of the IAEA said July 14 that a separate agreement would be made on Iran's Parchin site.
Amano also said that a roadmap has been signed between the IAEA and Iran to make an assessment of issues relating to PMD (Possible Military Dimensions) of Tehran's nuclear program by the end of 2015. He added that Iran and the IAEA representatives would hold technical meetings on the issue.
However, Iranian officials have announced on various occasions that Tehran would never allow foreigners to inspect the countries military sites.
Salehi said on July 14 that the Parchin issue would be resolved within the red lines of the Islamic Republic.
Iran and the P5+1(Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US) reached a nuclear deal after more than a decade of on-off negotiation, granting Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
