Iran deputy FM clarifies comments on Parchin nuclear site
Press TV reports Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular, Parliamentary and Iranians Affairs Hassan Qashqavi has clarified his comments on Iran’s Parchin site.
In an interview with Press TV, Qashqavi provided explanations on reports quoting him that the country is ready to allow the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to visit Parchin military site.
Qashqavi said: “In my speech which I delivered in Tehran University, there are two subjects in this speech. In one of them I delivered my speech regarding national security of Iran and the other was about the nuclear issue.”
He added: “One of the correspondents who was in this speech mixed two subjects from two separate issues and in his personal perception of this speech, he delivered his perception regarding this matter but in the text of my speech there was not any kind of this sentence because there were two separate issues which were delivered by me and there is no connection between the two matters.”
Some media had quoted the Iranian official as saying that Iran would allow IAEA inspectors to visit Parchin site if the world powers reduced their threats against Iran.
