Iran Insists on Outrageous New Terms

AS REPORTED BY FOX NEWS:

Iran reportedly is insisting that its own officials be able to take soil samples at a suspected nuclear site and may get its way, in the latest complication to raise concerns from Congress as the Obama administration tries to sell the newly struck nuclear deal.

The investigation into the Parchin military complex by the International Atomic Energy Agency is part of the overarching nuclear deal reached earlier this month between Iran and six world powers. Iran is accused of experimenting at Parchin with ways to detonate a nuclear weapon — Iran denies any such work but has agreed to give the IAEA access.

Yet after several senators initially claimed Iran wanted to conduct its own soil sampling, officials confirmed to The Associated Press that the U.N. agency may indeed agree to these terms provided it is allowed to monitor the process, though a final agreement has not yet been reached.

The officials did not say what reasons Iran gave for wanting to take its own samples. The samples would be analyzed by the agency for traces left by any nuclear experiments.
