Iran Nuclear Chief Rejects IAEA Demand to Access Karaj Site, Says Beyond Safeguards

Iran’s nuclear chief said on Tuesday demands by the UN nuclear watchdog IAEA for access to the Karaj workshop are beyond safeguards and unacceptable to Tehran, the semi-official news agency ISNA reported.


“Karaj … is outside of safeguards …”, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, said.


“We act within the framework of safeguards and NPT (nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty) and do not accept anything else,” he noted.


“The Karaj issue is closed, and the alleged cases and Karaj are interconnected and must be resolved together.”
