U.N. nuclear watchdog says its chief visited military site in Iran

The director general of the U.N. nuclear watchdog, which is investigating whether Iran carried out work related to developing an atom bomb, visited a sensitive military site during a trip to the country, the agency said on Sunday. The military site, called Parchin, has been at the centre of a debate over the level of access that the International Atomic Energy Agency

(IAEA) will have in policing a deal reached in July between Iran and six world powers. The IAEA is due to issue an assessment this year on “possible military dimensions” of Iran’s nuclear programme under a roadmap agreement accompanying that deal. One open question is whether Iran carried out high-explosives testing at Parchin that could be related to making a nuclear warhead.
