On Tuesday Iran rejected allegations it attempted to clean up radioactive traces possibly left by secret nuclear work at a key military site before granting U.N. inspectors permission to visit the facility. Boston.com writes about this.
As spokesman of Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters in Tehran the allegations were misleading and false, and insisted that such traces could not be cleaned up.
Satellite images of Iran’s Parchin military facility that circulated last week appeared to show trucks and earth-moving vehicles at the location. That set off assertions by diplomats, all nuclear experts accredited to the U.N. nuclear agency in Vienna, Austria, about a cleanup operation.
Western powers aim to urge Iran by various pressures to deny the uranium enrichment. Psychological, economical pressure, warnings are used in this way. Iranian side announces that the nuclear enrichment is just for the civilian needs and announces that it is ready to protect the Motherland. Iranian officials announce they are not afraid of the warnings and continue their work.
After the EU decided to put sanction on Iranian oil till June, 2011 Iran stpped the oil supply to European countries earlier.
