UN INSPECTIONS: Iran Denies Lab Razing Was to Hide Nuclear Activity
Rowhani said razing military lab in Lavizan was for making a park, not for hiding banned nuclear activity from the UN inspectors. “The municipality wanted to make a park, but there was a dispute with the defence ministry,” secretatry of the supreme national security council Hassan Rowhani said today, denying US charges that razing an army research facility was to hide banned nuclear activity.
“Commercial satellite photography shows the complete dismantling and the razing of a facility at Lavizan Shiyan,” US State Deparatment Spokesman Richard Boucher said on June 17. “It’s deplorable but not surprising that Iran's deception has gone to the extent of bulldozing entire sites to prevent the IAEA from discovering evidence of its nuclear weapons program,” he added.
