TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A senior Iranian lawmaker denounced the US call for inspection of Iran’s military sites, stressing that the Islamic Republic will never allow foreign sides to inspect its military centers.
There is no connection between the country’s military centers and its nuclear activities, Spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Naqavi Hosseini underlined in an interview with Press Shia.
He added that Iran’s military sites are top secret and their “doors are closed to strangers forever.”
The official advised US officials to avoid speaking about Iran’s redlines and instead fulfil their commitments enshrined in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 nuclear deal between the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
In August, US President Donald Trump dispatched his UN ambassador Nikki Haley to Vienna to press the UN nuclear chief on their reading of Iran’s adherence to the JCPOA.
Haley said Washington wants inspection of Iranian military and non-military sites to determine its compliance with the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.
Thereafter, Iran’s mission to the IAEA issued a statement, saying the objectives and the results of Haley’s trip to Vienna “contradict” the JCPOA and Resolution 2231, which the UN Security Council adopted to endorse the nuclear agreement.
