Fleming denies report on IAEA second visit to Iran's Parchin site

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) spokeswoman, Melissa Fleming, on Wednesday vehemently denied the report that the IAEA plans to go back to Parchin military site in Iran after a first inspection last Thursday, IRNA reported from Vienna.

A diplomat, who asked not to be named, told AFP Tuesday that IAEA inspectors intend to return to Parchin site, waiting for Iran's permission for a second visit.

Fleming, in her talks with IRNA, added, "Some diplomats, who are unknown, say something to the press and most of their remarks are false and completely wrong."

The French agency has also quoted the anonymous diplomat as saying that Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani announced that the IAEA inspectors have carefully probed Parchin site and his country is confident that the inspectors will not report a fishy case in their report on Iran's nuclear activities.

The spokeswoman refused to elaborate on inspection of a delegation currently in Tehran, saying the IAEA cannot give the press any detail of the visits, due to their sensitivity, as the agency is not willing to analyze them right now.

She added Parchin site has been inspected and more inspections in Iran are ahead.

The inspectors are in Iran to pay visits to different sites not just Parchin, said Fleming, adding that it is a routine part of a process.
