Amano Visits Parchin

IAEA Secretary-General Yukiya Amano on Sunday visited Parchin military site, suspected of being a venue for past nuclear weapons work by Iran. The surprise visit was part of IAEA’s investigation of possible military dimensions (PMD) to the country’s nuclear program. Tero Varjoranta, IAEA’s department head for safeguards, accompanied Amano in the visit to Parchin.

IAEA is expected to release its findings by the end of this year, and if favorable to Iran it would jumpstart the process of the lifting of sanctions against the country. 

The Iranian supreme leader and senior military officers always insisted that foreigners would not be allowed to visit any military site. Amano and Varjoranta were no Iranians!

During his one-day trip to Tehran, Amano also met with President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Zarif and attended a meeting at Majlis’s special commission reviewing the JCPOA.
