TEHRAN, May 13. /TASS/. An additional protocol to the nuclear non-proliferation safeguards agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) does not oblige Iran to open up its military facilities for inspections, spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Wednesday.
"The additional protocol to the Safeguards Agreement with the IAEA does not oblige signatory states in compliance with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons to allow inspections to their military facilities," the spokesman said in an interview with state television.
"First of all, the Islamic Republic did not approve the Additional Protocol and is not following it. Secondly, none of the protocol’s articles stipulates specific obligations with regard to providing access to the military facilities of a state that has signed the protocol," he said.
If a state doesn’t wish to admit UN nuclear watchdog’s experts to its military facility, "they have the right to inspect the adjacent territory or use other inspection methods," he said.
