Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Spokesperson for the
Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said the IAEA is
not permitted to carry out surprise and unplanned inspections of Iran’s
facilities; "the norm is that we provide the IAEA with certain information that
will be verified by the Agency. If there is any ambiguity, the Agency will
raise the issue and we will definitely respond to it,” he added.
"They may have some questions that would reinforce suspicion
that Iran is conducting unethical nuclear activities; in that case they may
request inspection,” said the AEOI deputy head.
Kamalvandi went on to add, "since there is no point of
ambiguity [about Iran’s nuclear program] for the Agency, and therefore, no
reason to make allegations and wrong assumptions, everything you hear about
IAEA access to Iran’s military sites is just media hype.”
Kamalvandi further stressed that the country’s nuclear
industry is progressing well, adding "we are advancing our nuclear activities
based on our agenda that has already been coordinated with the IAEA. Today, our
new generation centrifuge machines are evolving and will reach mass production
in the predicted time frame.”
