TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian official is saying the country may open a controversial military site to inspectors of the United Nations nuclear watchdog.
A Thursday report by independent Mardomsalari daily quotes Deputy Foreign Minister Hasan Qashqavi as saying the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency may visit Parchin military site "if the foreign threats weaken". He did not elaborate.
As high government officials rarely speak out on such sensitive issues, Qashqavi's remarks were seen as echoing the views of Iran's leadership.
Earlier this month IAEA inspectors on a trip to Tehran failed to visit Parchin, where they believe Iran has carried out some nuclear experiments.
Iran says Parchin is only a conventional military site and denies the West's claims its nuclear program has a military dimension.
