No one allowed to inspect Iranian military sites: Senior MP

Tehran, May 17, IRNA – A senior member of parliament said Sunday that no one has the right to inspect Iranian military sites.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told reporters that inspection of Iran’s military sites would not be part of an emerging nuclear deal between Tehran and the six world powers – known as the P5+1.

Asked whether Iran and the P5+1 could meet a June 30 deadline for reaching a deal, Broujerdi referred to remarks by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that the thing important is maintenance of national interests of the country. He said that if the negotiating parties fail to meet the deadline, they will extend it.

Commenting on whether the additional protocol has to be approved by the Parliament, Boroujerdi said that the seventh Parliament halted the voluntarily implementation of the additional protocol and that in order to resume implementing it, an approval of the Parliament is needed.

He said that Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has a plan on the agenda which would oblige the government to preserve nuclear achievements of the country.
