An Iranian lawmaker said Iran will not allow International Atomic Energy Agency or IAEA inspectors to visit the Parchin military complex, the Mehr News Agency reported.
The News Agency reported that the IAEA is insisting to inspect the Parchin military site before Iran and the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) resume nuclear talks in Moscow on June 18-19.
The insistence on inspection of the military site comes as the West has been claiming that satellite images show that explosive tests relevant for the development of nuclear bombs might have taken place there.
"The U.S. and West are seeking to find access to our military sites but the representatives of the people will not allow our military sites, which have nothing to do with nuclear activities, to be inspected by Western spies," MP Avaz Heidarpour reportedly said.
Heidarpour reportedly said,"We will file complaint against the agency for satellite espionage on" the Parchin military site.
In mean-time, The Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency has said that Iran and the UN nuclear watchdog will continue the talks on Iran's nuclear program.
"The talks will continue, and the date and venue for the talks will be announced in the future," Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh reportedly said, one day after Iran and the IAEA held a new round of talks in Vienna in an attempt to seal a framework deal on the arrangements for further investigation into Iran's nuclear activities.
