TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A top Iranian lawmaker played down US calls for foreign access to Iran’s military bases, stressing that the country’s military affairs have nothing to do with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and that no country will be given access to Iran’s military information.
Inspection of Iran’s military sites is forbidden and impossible, Chairman of the Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told Press Shia Agency on Tuesday.
Describing Iranian military centers as a “red line”, the senior lawmaker underlined that no foreigner would ever have access to the country’s military information and centers.
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 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Haley said Washington wants inspections 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.
