An unusual secret agreement with a UN agency will allow Iran to use its own experts to inspect a site allegedly used to develop nuclear arms, according to a document seen by The Associated Press. The revelation is sure to roil American and Israeli critics of the main Iran deal signed by the US, Iran and five world powers in July.
Those critics have complained that the deal is built on trust of the Iranians, a claim the US has denied. The investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the UN International Atomic Energy Agency is linked to a broader probe of allegations that Iran has worked on atomic weapons. That investigation is part of the overarching nuclear deal reached earlier this month between Iran and six world powers.
