Iran says it will allow nuclear inspection

Jan. 28, 2007 at 3:47 PM   |   Comments

TEHRAN, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Iran's foreign ministry spokesman said Sunday the country will cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency, despite earlier kicking out inspectors.

"Signatories to the Non-Proliferation Treaty have the right not to accept certain IAEA inspectors and replace them with others," Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said at his weekly press conference, IRNA, the Islamic Republic News Agency Reported.

The Fars News Agency reported that two IAEA inspectors arrived in Iran on Saturday for a one-week visit. The inspectors are scheduled to visit the Isfahan plant, the Natanz enrichment facility and Arak's heavy water installations, a source told Fars. Iran recently barred 38 IAEA inspectors from its nuclear sites.

Fars also reported Iran is preparing for nuclear celebrations in February.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced that Iran will celebrate its nuclear rights during the Ten-Day Dawn from Feb. 1 to Feb.11. The Ten-Day Dawn celebrates the end of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979.

Iran says its nuclear program is for nuclear power; the United States and other countries say they fear it will produce nuclear weapons.
