Iran rejects US demand for inspection of its military sites

Iran has dismissed a top US diplomat’s demand for the inspection of Iranian military sites by the UN nuclear watchdog, shrugging off comments by America’s ambassador to the UN as only a “dream.” Government spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht told reporters that the demand by Ambassador Nikki Haley wasn’t worth any attention. Iran will not accept any inspection of its sites and “especially our military sites.” He says the sites and all information about them are “classified.” Earlier last week Haley said the US wants inspection of Iranian military and non-military sites to determine its compliance with the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
