Iran Refuses to Grant Entry Permits to IAEA Inspectors

A026086110.jpgTEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- The committee for revising Iran’s relations with the International Atomic Energy Agency has decided to deny granting entry permits to 38 IAEA inspectors, a senior MP said here on Monday.

Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaoddin Boroujerdi told FNA that the decision does not imply complete halt of Iran’s cooperation with the IAEA.

“As the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Mr. Larijani, has announced the responsibility for reconsidering cooperation with the IAEA has been entrusted to the said committee,” he reminded.

The lawmaker reiterated that Iran, as a signatory of the NPT and a member state of the IAEA, is loyal to its commitments, and thus, “inspections will be carried out within the relevant rules and regulations.”

He said that inspection of Iran’s nuclear sites will continue on the basis of the mechanisms stipulated in the safeguard agreement.
