IAEA Keeps Demanding Iran Give Them Access to Alleged Sites

US says Iran must grant unlimited access to everything

A Friday vote at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) pushed by the US passed, agreeing to continue demanding that Iran grant unconditional access to two sites which were alleged to have had nuclear activities in the past.

The issue of IAEA access to these sites has been contentious, as the “evidence” of activity is almost entirely built around dubious Israeli allegations. Iran has argued that since they already give access to the sites before, and nothing was found, there is no point to keep rehashing it.

But with nothing else ongoing, rehashing Iran’s past activities is an end unto itself, and the US pushed for the world to keep the IAEA making demands, saying that Iran must grant unconditional access to any and all sites or face more “maximum pressure.”

The IAEA accomplishes little to just keep rehashing Israeli allegations, and the only point of it all is to ensure that investigations into things that likely never happened are going remain open and unresolved, which allows the US to keep condemning Iran.
