Iran to allow IAEA visit Parchin military site

Tehran, March 6, 2012

Iran said it will give the UN nuclear watchdog access  to its Parchin military complex, news agency ISNA reported on Tuesday.    

"The fact that Parchin is a military site and accessing it has a time consuming process, therefore the visit cannot be allowed frequently ... Once again we will allow the IAEA to visit it one more time," Iran's representative office in Vienna said in a statement, according to ISNA.

An IAEA report last year said that Iran had built a large containment chamber at Parchin, southeast of Tehran, in which to conduct high-explosives tests that the IAEA says are "strong indicators" of possible weapons development. - Reuters
