Iran says will discuss 'other solutions' to nuclear inspections deadlock

DUBAI - Iran will discuss "other solutions" to Western demands that it allow UN inspectors access to its military sites and to interview its nuclear scientists, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was quoted on Sunday as saying.
The question of access for international inspectors has become one of the main sticking points between Tehran and six world powers as they try to overcome obstacles to a final nuclear agreement one month before of a deadline.
"We have decided to discuss other solutions to resolve this issue," Zarif was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency, after holding six hours of meetings on Saturday with his US counterpart John Kerry.
Western officials say inspections of military sites by UN watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and access to Iran's scientists are critical to checking whether Iran is pursuing a clandestine nuclear weapons program.
