The IAEA is forever griping about its lack of access to certain Iranian conventional military sites, claiming a conceivable nuclear element to the locations.
Iran did something the IAEA didn’t expect today: they invited IAEA inspectors to visit Marivan, the area where “high-explosive experiments” supposedly took place, to see that no such thing actually happened.
The IAEA, more comfortable complaining than actually inspecting, rejected the offer, saying visiting the site wasn’t helpful and that they still have doubts about the experiments, and don’t consider Iran to have answered their concerns.
The IAEA has claimed questions about activities based on a number of documents leaked to them by an unnamed nation, though Iran has pointed out that many of those documents were obvious forgeries with fairly basic errors in them.
