Iran is defending its resolution to block an U.N. inspector from a nuclear build last week.
A spokesman for Iran‘s atomic agency, Behrouz Kamalvandi, stated Saturday that the Iranian authorities “legally speaking” had accomplished nothing wrong in blockading the feminine inspector from its Natanz nuclear facility on Oct. 28.
Iran alleges the inspector examined clear for suspected traces of explosive nitrates. The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog has disputed the claim.
It marked the first acknowledged event of Iran blockading an inspector amid tensions over its collapsing nuclear deal with world powers. The U.S. unilaterally withdrew from the deal over a one year within the past.
Direct TV carried Kamalvandi’s remarks from the Fordo nuclear build. He stated Iran hasn’t imposed any restriction on inspections, but warned towards the usage of them for “sabotage and leaking files.”
