IAEA experts arrive in Iran to inspect nuclear facilities


TEHRAN, June 28 (RIA Novosti, Nikolai Terekhov) - Two experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency arrived in Iran Tuesday to inspect nuclear facilities, a source in the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said.

The experts came "to inspect nuclear facilities in order to observe the implementation of the last resolution of the IAEA Board of Governors and settle contradictions between some IAEA members and Iranian representatives on plutonium production," the source said. "The Islamic Republic insists that it does not produce weapon-grade plutonium."

Iran has had the highest number of nuclear inspections in the last two and half years than any other country, something local experts say is politically motivated.

"The U.S. keeps bringing groundless accusations against Tehran of creating an atomic bomb without concrete evidence and is using IAEA inspectors to its interests as it did in Iraq," a local expert said.

Newly elected President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad said the country intended to develop peaceful nuclear technologies in its national interests and maintain mutually beneficial dialogue with the EU to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem.
