Iran agrees to IAEA inspection of military site

Iran to allow IAEA inspection of Parchin

The ISNA news agency is reporting that Iran is willing to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to visit it’s military base at Parchin, the news comes as Reuters reported that the P5+1 have agreed to reopen negotiations with Iran over sanction placed on the country.

An IAEA report from 2011 stated that Iran had built a large chamber at Parchin suitable for conducting explosives test which could be seen as ‘strong indicators’ of research into nuclear weapons. ┬áIran’s refusal to allow another visit to Parchin were among the key reasons of talks breaking down in February and Iran’s reversal on this matter will be seen as progress into dealing with the nuclear issues surround Iran.

Although a date has not been set for the visit we at Say NO to war with Iran hope that talks will progress quickly to allow these diplomatic measures to succeed. Below is a map showing the location of Parchin.
