IAEA experts to inspect Iranian military facilities
A five-member delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will arrive in Iran to visit Parchin military facilities.
Talking to IRNA Tuesday, IAEA spokeswoman Melissa Fleming said inspectors of the agency would depart for Tehran in the near future following Friday talks between an Iranian delegation and the IAEA representatives in Vienna. The Iranian delegation conferred with the IAEA representatives on ways to inspect Parchin site and the date for the inspection, she added.
According to her, inspecting a center will last three to four days but it may be prolonged if needed. She noted the visit is aimed at inspecting just military facilities of Parchin, stressing no other plans are on agenda. Iran allowed IAEA to inspect Parchin site upon a request by IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei.
In the past, Iran categorically denied any kind of nuclear activities at the site of Parchin, in southwest Tehran. Parchin is a site for industrial activities of Iran's defense organization.
