Tehran, July 26, IRNA – Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said Sunday that the issue of visiting Iran’s military and sensitive sites by inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency has been resolved and Tehran and the agency have reached a good mutual understanding on this issue.

Speaking to Al-Alam News Network, Araqchi said that access to Iran’s military sites has been divided into two areas – one area is about the issues related to the country’s past military activities, wrongly referred to Possible Military Dimensions (PMD), and the other is about Tehran’s future activities.

Araqchi said that there is no need for concern about solving the issues related to Tehran’s past nuclear activities. He said that Iran and the IAEA have agreed upon solving the issues.

To ensure the agency of the future of its nuclear activities, Iran has agreed to implement the Additional Protocol, Araqchi said.

He noted that the Additional Protocol is nothing beyond the international regulations and there is no need for concern in this regard.
