Qeybparvar’s statements come as the issue of access for the international inspectors has become one of the main sticking points between Tehran and the six worl powers as they lock horns in trying to overcome obstacles to finalize a nuclear agreement one month ahead of the set deadline.
The United States and France have both threatened to block any deal that does not allow access but the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khomeini has specifically ruled out any inspections or interviews with nuclear scientists involved in covert nuclear weapons efforts. Western Officials say that inspections of military sites by UN watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and access to the scientists working on Iranian regime’s nuclear program are vital to finding out whether the regime is pursuing a hidden nuclear weapons program.
Information obtained by the Iranian opposition movement , the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), it was revealed on Thursday that the Iranian regime and the government of North Korea have extensively given each other information and delegations of experts in the fields of nuclear weapons and nuclear warhead design and development as recently as late April 2015.
This delegation from North Korea included experts in nuclear warheads, various elements of ballistics and they were present in Iran for one week at the end of April. The next delegation of North Korean experts is also scheduled to arrive in Iran in June and it will be comprised of nine experts.
PMOI spokesperson Shahin Gobadi said; “Intrusive inspections at any time and any place including all military and non-military sites as well as on the regime’s accountability for the military dimensions of its nuclear projects, providing unfettered, unconditional access to the regime’s nuclear specialists and providing information on the regime’s nuclear equipment smuggling networks are part and parcel of any nuclear agreement with the regime. Otherwise any claim regarding the closure of pathways to Tehran’s attainment of nuclear weapons is a delusion at best. “
Early on the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif suggested that the fault for any indecisiveness and delay lies with the U.S. and its partners. “In negotiations, both sides must show flexibility,” he wrote on Twitter. “We have and are ready to make a good deal for all. We await our counterparts’ readiness.” However his words have not been backed by actions, and Iran is showing signs of dissent even before the deal has been struck.
