Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran,
said on Saturday International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors
will continue to visit Iran on a regular monthly basis.
The official’s comments come in reaction to allegations by AP that the country recently agreed to allow unannounced inspections of its facilities in return for the recent extension of nuclear negotiations between Iran and six world powers.
During the seven-month period of talks extension, the extent and nature of inspections of our nuclear activities will be as it has been before, he maintained.
Iran and the P5+1 countries - the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany - in their last round of talks had a week of intense closed-door nuclear talks in the Austrian city of Vienna. The negotiations aimed at tackling the remaining obstacles that exist in the way of reaching a final deal.
At the end of the week, the sides decided to extend their negotiations for seven more months. They agreed also that the interim deal they had signed in the Swiss city of Geneva last November would remain in place during the extension which lasts until July 1, 2015.
