Iranian nuclear facilities' inspection at a record high

TEHRAN, June 8 (RIA Novosti's Nikolai Terekhov) - The number of IAEA inspections of Iranian nuclear installations has hit a record high.

"The number of inspections has totaled 1,194 man-days with the unannounced arrival two days ago of two IAEA experts who came for 12 days to inspect the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities," the Iranian radio reported on Wednesday.

The statistics have been maintained since February 2003.

According to the two IAEA inspectors whose names have not been given, "the number of the inspections in Iran is unprecedented in IAEA's history".

Under the additional protocol to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), signed by the Iranian government, IAEA is entitled to inspections without prior notification.

Iran ranks first in terms of the nuclear installation inspections conducted by IAEA over almost three years. There has been no proof unearthed that Iran's current nuclear programs have a military spin-off.

Meanwhile, the United States keeps on alleging that Iran is intent on developing a nuclear bomb.
