Nuclear: Iran-IAEA meeting on June 8 in Vienna (Amano)

Officials from Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will meet on June 8 in Vienna to discuss Iran’s nuclear issue, said the Director General of IAEA, Yukiya Amano quoted by the international media on Monday.

“The meeting between Iran and the Agency has been set for June 8 in Vienna,” said Mr. Amano to the Board of Governors of the IAEA, which includes representatives from 35 countries.

The Director General also urged Tehran to “provide quick access to the site [nuclear] Parchin”.

In early March, the Western media reported, referring to anonymous experts of the IAEA, that work was underway to conceal Parchin for testing a device for a nuclear test.

This information was immediately denied by the Iranian authorities who have described it as “hateful propaganda”.

IAEA delegation visited Iran in the second half of February. Inspectors were unable to visit Parchin suspected by the Agency to host an underground facility used for Tehran’s nuclear program. The Iranian authorities initially said that the inspection of nuclear sites was not included in the program of the visit, but then said that the delegation itself had refused to go to Parchin.
