IAEA says Iran not cooperating with access to military site

"Providing access to the Parchin site would be a positive step which would help to demonstrate Iran's willingness to engage with the agency on the substance of our concerns," Amano said, according to the BBC.

The latest round of nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group — the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany — were held last week in Kazakhstan.

There were no breakthroughs in this round of negotiations, but future meetings were planned for March and April.

Ahead of last week’s talks, a report from the IAEA was made public that found Iran had ramped up its nuclear activity, as Tehran had begun installing more than 100 high-powered nuclear centrifuges at its Natanz facility.

The United States and its allies suspect Iran is seeking a nuclear weapon, while Iran insists its nuclear activity is for peaceful purposes only.
