Iran’s Khamenei rules out inspectors’ interviews with nuclear scientists

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Tehran would not accept “unreasonable demands” by world powers during negotiations over its disputed nuclear program, and ruled out letting inspectors interview its atomic scientists.

The comments, reported on state TV, were the latest in a series of forthright statements on inspections in the countdown to a June 30 deadline to resolve a decade-old standoff over Iran’s nuclear work.

“We will never yield to pressure … We will not accept unreasonable demands … Iran will not give access to its (nuclear) scientists,” Khamenei said according to the state TV report.
