Watchdog says it can't inspect all Iran's nuke plants

World Bulletin / News Desk

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran's nuclear program could not be seen as solely peaceful since all the nuclear facilities cannot be inspected in the country, on Monday in Vienna.

Speaking to press after the IAEA's board meeting of 35 nations, Yukiya Amano, the head of the nuclear watchdog, called on Tehran to allow inspectors to monitor the activities in the Parchin nuclear plant, in the north of the country.

Amano said the nuclear body could not monitor the plant since 2005.

Prior to the meeting, the director had said that much remains to be done to resolve all outstanding issues in negotiations.

Iran and six world powers - the US, the UK, France, Russia, China and Germany - signed an agreement dubbed the 'joint plan of action', to curb Iran’s nuclear program in return for eased sanctions on November 24 last year which came into force on January 20.

The next round of talks will launch in Vienna on March 17.
