JNS.org –  An Iranian general has declared that his country will not allow even limited access to military sites under any final nuclear agreement.

“Any kind of inspection of Iran’s military sites, including managed and restricted access, is unacceptable,” Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri was quoted by the Tasnim news agency as saying, Reutersreported.

Jazayeri’s statement echoes other Iranian leaders’ stated stances on access for international inspectors to nuclear sites, including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has said that “absolutely” no permission will be given for inspections.

The tough stance on military sites comes as a June 30 deadline approaches for Iran and world powers to reach a final nuclear deal. Access to Iranian military sites is one of a number of key sticking points in the negotiations.
