Inspection of military sites impossible

TEHRAN, May 11 (MNA) – Iranian Deputy FM and senior negotiator has said constant and permanent inspection of Iran's nuclear facilities would be done in the wake of a prospective nuclear deal.

Spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran's Parliament Seyed Hossein Naghavi quoted Iranian Deputy FM Seyed Abbas Araghchi as saying that constant and permanent inspection of Iran's nuclear facilities would be done in the wake of a prospective nuclear deal, however he rejected any inspection of Iranian military bases and sites.

Iranian senior negotiator attended a meeting of National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran's Parliament discussing the latest status of Iran’s nuclear talks with the 5+1.

Outlining the issues discussed during the meeting, Seyed Hossein Naghavi quoted Araghchi as saying that Iran faces a tough road towards achieving desirable results in its negotiations with the Western sides.

“Reaching a nuclear deal is accessible in the context of the negotiation, however, out of the context, the Zionist lobby, the Saudis and US Congress create obstacles on the way of nuclear negotiations with 5+1,” Araghchi highlighted, adding that any opposition from American Congressmen could face President Obama’s veto which requires two-thirds vote to be ineffective, something which seems impossible.

The only consequence Iran would face under Congress interference is delaying the implementation of the agreement for two months, Araghchi stressed.

While criticizing the efforts by US Congress to hinder the negotiations, Araghchi said they certainly are the only losers since Iran will follow its own way while the unity between 5+1 states will be destabilized.

Araghchi referred to the inspections saying that it is the subject of some of our most serious discussions.

"Inspection is not something extraordinary. It is one of the NPT’s basic principles. The countries that sign the NPT enjoy a peaceful nuclear energy or peaceful nuclear activities and in exchange accept inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency and take trust-building measures for the agency," Araghchi said, while he rejected any possibility of allowing inspections of Iran's military sites.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Naghavi quoted Araghchi as saying that all the economic and financial sanctions against Iran should be removed the very day a final agreement on Iran's nuclear program is implemented.
