Iran says no need for UN watchdog office in Tehran
Tehran
(AFP) – A senior Iranian official Saturday dismissed the need for a Tehran office for UN inspectors tasked with monitoring Iran’s partial nuclear freeze, Mehr news agency said. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency had said the watchdog may ask Iran for permission “to set up a temporary office to provide logistical support,” for its inspectors. UN inspectors are in Iran to monitor the implementation of a nuclear deal with Western powers that took effect on Monday, after Iran stopped enriching uranium above five percent fissile purities at its Natanz and Fordo facilities. “In our opinion, by considering the volume of nuclear activities in the country, there is no need for setting up a nuclear watchdog office in Iran,” said Reza Najafi, Tehran’s envoy to the IAEA. “We have not received such a request from the IAEA for setting up an office in Tehran,” Najafi told Mehr news agency. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said on Friday he might seek Iran’s permission for a Tehran office for inspectors.
