Iran refuses UN nuclear watchdog access to Parchin baseSchools invest millions preparing for SEC Network

The reactor building at the Russian-built Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran on August 21, 2010Iran will not give UN nuclear inspectors access to a military base outside Tehran that they have been seeking to visit since 2005, Defence Minister Hossein Dehgan said on Saturday. Dehgan's comments come just two days before a deadline for Iran to give its response to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over historic allegations of a military dimension to its nuclear research.

"There is therefore no reason for new access to Parchin as nothing new has come up since the last inspections."
