Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Tuesday, January 8 it will consider allowing International Atomic Energy Agency officials to inspect the Parchin military site suspected of housing nuclear work once the country’s right to enrich uranium is recognized by Western powers, Bloomberg reported. “If we reach an agreement where Iran’s nuclear rights are fully recognized … Iran will be ready to take necessary measures to allay concerns expressed by the IAEA,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said. The announcement casts doubt on whether a scheduled Jan. 16 visit by IAEA inspectors will result in an agreement to broaden inspections, as predicted by the agency last month. The IAEA sees a visit to Parchin, about 19 miles southeast of Tehran, as being its top goal in Iran. It says it was given information showing Iran may have built a blast chamber there for testing nuclear-weapons components.
