Iran rejects US demand for inspection of its military sites

But he told The Associated Press that under monitoring conditions accepted by Iran, his agency "has access to (all) locations without making distinctions between military and civilian locations" as it works to ensure that Iran doesn't have hidden nuclear activities.

IRAN has remained within key limits of its nuclear activities imposed in its 2015 deal with world powers, a United Nations atomic watchdog report said yesterday.

An Israeli military strike may be the only option left to effectively derail Iran's nuclear program, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN John Bolton said.

Iran remains in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, a United Nations atomic watchdog report showed Thursday, even as growing tensions between Tehran and Washington threaten to torpedo the landmark agreement. But in the last known inspection of a military site, the agency allowed Iranian personnel to do that work under limited conditions two years ago at Parchin, a facility where the agency suspects Iranian scientists worked in the past on atomic arms.

The 2015 accord lifted worldwide sanctions against Iran in return for Tehran limiting its nuclear energy programme to ensure it can not be put to developing an atomic bomb. "The IAEA, US intelligence community and our allies in the P5+1 have all affirmed Iran's compliance".

United Nations calls for humanitarian cease-fire in Raqqa, Syria
There has been a recent increase in the number of coalition air strikes on Raqqa . Islamic State is on the back foot in both Syria and Iraq.

IAEA has published regular reports showing Iran has broadly complied with the deal.

The US president "has violated the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] and continues to hold the fate of the accord in doubt by threatening to withhold a congressionally mandated certification of Iran's compliance in mid-October, " the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) policy director Jamal Abdi said.

The report - the third such report since President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January - is confidential, but it was leaked to several news agencies that reported its contents. Trump told The Wall Street Journal in July that he "did not expect" to declare Iran compliant in the coming months, despite a lack of public evidence of any Iranian violations. "If they want to bring down the deal, they will", the first IAEA official said, referring to the Trump administration.

Under the accord, Iran could not get sanctions relief until the IAEA was satisfied Tehran had answered outstanding questions about the so-called "possible military dimensions" of its past nuclear research. Trump has been a vocal opponent of the deal, which he and his conservative supporters criticize as being too soft on Iran. But the parties to the deal have so far agreed with this solution.

"The report reveals that U.S. officials' rhetoric and media hype has not impacted its verification activities and reporting on the case", continued the official stressing that Iran and all member states expect the agency's secretariat to keep up its professional job impartially.
