Iran: No More Inspection of Arak Heavy Water Facilities on Agenda

Politics - Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced on Thursday that Tehran has no more plans to allow inspection of its heavy water reactor in Arak.

At present, no more IAEA inspection of Arak facilities is on agenda, Salehi told reporters in Tehran on Thursday.

He added that the report on the IAEA’s recent inspection of Arak facilities would be provided to the UN nuclear watchdogs Board of Governors by the IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano.

The IAEA inspectors arrived in Tehran on Saturday to visit Arak heavy water reactor for a third time.

During their visit to Iran, the IAEA inspectors held a meeting with the officials of the AEOI and then visited Arak heavy water installations on Sunday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, as a sign of goodwill to remove any possible ambiguity about the peaceful nature of its nuclear program, has given a positive response to the request made by the IAEA to visit the plant, the AEOI said in a statement last Thursday.
