Iran said to allow UN agency inspection

Boston Globe:
Iran has agreed to give the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency a new look at a military complex linked by the United States to possible atomic arms research, diplomats said yesterday.

The diplomats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said no date for the inspection had been set. But one of them suggested that it could come before the planned Feb. 28 meeting of the board of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN watchdog investigating Tehran's nuclear activities. ...

In leaks to news media last year, US intelligence officials said a specially secured site at Parchin may be used in research for high-explosive components of nuclear weapons.
