Iran will not allow even restricted outside access to its military sites under any nuclear accord with six powers, the deputy chief of its armed forces said on Friday, reaffirming Tehran's tough stance on the issue as the deadline for a deal looms.

Access for UN nuclear inspectors to Iranian military sites and the pace and timing of sanctions relief for Tehran are among several major disputes that Iran and the powers need to resolve before the self-imposed June 30 deadline for a final deal.

"Any kind of inspection of Iran's military sites, including managed and restricted access, is unacceptable," Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri was quoted by Tasnim news agency as saying.

Some senior Iranian negotiators had raised the possibility of some limited access, with Tehran in control of the process.

"Controlled and managed access (to the military sites) does not mean inspection," Iran's senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi said after arriving in Vienna on Thursday for another round of talks with officials from the six powers.
