Iran dismissed a scathing report Wednesday by the UN nuclear watchdog and argued it had provided the agency's inspectors with adequate access to the country's nuclear facilities, according to the state IRNA news agency. It was the first reaction in Teheran to the International Atomic Energy Agency report Wednesday that sets the stage for a new round of punitive UN sanctions on Iran over its failure to halt the country's controversial nuclear enrichment program. The report from Mohamed ElBaradei, the head of the UN's nuclear watchdog agency, also faulted Tehran for blocking IAEA efforts to probe suspicious nuclear activities. It suggested that Iran's rollback of previous monitoring agreements was potentially as worrying as its defiance on enrichment. "The access, that currently the (IAEA) agency has, has been based on Iran's legal commitments," IRNA quoted Mohammad Saeedi, deputy head of Iran's Atomic Energy organization, as saying. "There is no obstacle for legal inspections by the agency to Iran's nuclear facilities."
