The United Nation’s nuclear watchdog has failed to convince Iran of the need to inspect a military base suspected of housing nuclear weapons’ experiments, Iranian media cited the head of country’s atomic agency as saying on Saturday.

Comments reportedly made by the head of Atomic Energy Agency of Iran (AEOI) Fereidoun Abbasi came despite last week’s announcement of aburgeoning deal between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency [2] (IAEA), according to which the international community would have more access to the Parchin base.

Speaking on Tuesday, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano, who had been looking for a deal giving his inspectors a freer hand to investigate suspected atomic bomb research in Iran, described the outcome of his meetings in Iran as an “important development.”

He said he had raised the issue of access to the Parchin military site – an IAEA priority in its inquiry – and that this would be addressed as part of the agreement’s implementation.
