Iran confident after key UN nuclear inspection
AFP – Iran said it was confident that UN inspectors would disprove US allegations that it is conducting secret nuclear weapons work, and said its negotiations with the Europeans on the issue were “on a good track”.
A team of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Thursday visited the previously off-limits Iranian military site of Parchin, near Tehran.
“They visited, they took some samples from the open area and they returned home. We know what the results are because we have no illegal activity,” foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters. “After they study the results they can confirm our position,” he added Sunday.
