Iran To Allow The UN To Continue Nuclear Inspections

August 20, 2009

Vienna (ChattahBox) – The International Atomic Energy Agency, set in Vienna, has been allowed to visit Iran’s nuclear production sites for the first time in more than a year.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has also given the UN authorization to begin visiting it’s Natanz plant, where most of it’s uranium enrichment is performed.

The concessions come days before the publication of a new IAEA report that is expected to be highly critical of Iran’s co-operation with the agency.

So far there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of a threat from Iran as far as nuclear weaponry is concerned, but inspections have still been tentative as they move forward for the first time since the nation dispelled inspectors a year ago.

A report will be published on the findings by the IAEA within the next few weeks. However, whether or not those findings will be made public is still being debated within the organization, with many saying the facts should remain a matter of internal record, rather than public.  One has to be skeptical that Iran’s concessions are aimed at defusing some of the momentum towards punitive action.  It neighbor in Iraq played that game for years until former president George W. Bush decided the U.S. could wait no longer.
