Iran: Just Half-year Notice on Nuke Sites

Friday, 04 December 2009 11:00 AM

Iran will inform UN nuclear inspectors where 10 planned installations are only six months before they become operational, Tehran has said.

Friday's announcement came after the US warned Iran that "time was running out" if it wanted to avoid sanctions over its nuclear programme.

International inspectors have demanded information on all planned facilties.

It maintains that its programme is peaceful, despite international fears it is trying to build nuclear weapons.

Iran argues that under international agreements it is only required to give 180 days' notice before it begins operating a new facility.

But the UN's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, says that Iran must abide by a subsidiary agreement it signed in 2003 and give information on plants still at the design stage.

Tehran has continued to defy the six nations - the US, UK, France, Germany, China and Russia - trying to negotiate a deal over their nuclear material.
