Iran Calls for an End to IAEA Probe
Iran calls for an end to IAEA probe within a few months. Nuclear inspectors are expected to visit a site in the Iranian capital, Tehran, following evidence from satellite photographs that it was scraped clean earlier in 2004. Foreign ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi called for an end to UN inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities, four days after the UN International Atomic Energy Agency “deplored” Iran’s lack of “timely, full and proactive” cooperation with UN inspectors. He said the IAEA director-general and all the members of the IAEA board of governors have called for an end, within a few months, to IAEA’s probe of Iran, a goal shared by Iran.
Nuclear inspectors are expected to visit a site in the Iranian capital, Tehran, following evidence from satellite photographs that it was scraped clean earlier in 2004,” writes the New Scientist. Two commercial satellite images, on August 11, 2003 and March 22, 2004, show that the site’s buildings have been razed, its features obliterated and its ground cleared. “The images show that Iran has taken dramatic steps that make it difficult to discover what was happening there,” says Corey Hinderstein from the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington DC in an interview with the London based science monthly. His institute is responsible for finding and releasing the images.
