Iran will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect an alleged nuclear site. Photo: Nanking2012 via Wikimedia Commons. – The United Nations agency responsible for nuclear inspections has its own separate side agreement with Iran that allows the Islamic Republic to carry out its own inspections at the Parchin nuclear site.

As part the deal, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will diverge from its normal procedure of inspecting the nuclear sites and will let Iran “employ its own experts and equipment in the search for evidence or activities that it has consistently denied—trying to develop nuclear weapons,” the Associated Pressreported.

According to the report, the Parchin deal is a side agreement that was worked out by the IAEA and Iran, apart from the larger nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations, who were briefed about the side deal but not directly involved with it.

Republican U.S. lawmakers—who are in the midst of their 60-day period to review the Iran nuclear agreement—were quick to criticize the side deal, which highlights their claim that the larger nuclear deal is flawed because it is built on trusting the usually untrustworthy Iranians.

“Trusting Iran to inspect its own nuclear site and report to the U.N. in an open and transparent way is remarkably naive and incredibly reckless. This revelation only reinforces the deep-seated concerns the American people have about the agreement,” said U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the Senate’s Majority Whip.

    Well, if the Iranians fail to inspect themselves properly, we can always insist that Iran place harsh sanctions on itself …..

  • This is a miracle. I just was notified that there is a petition against the 340 Rabbis and 244 Rabbis have signed on. Together with the multitude of Rabbis who will sign my petition we will smother them. Numbers count. We want to show the world that as Rabbis we will not tolerate the safety of Israel being in jeopardy. As I write this Russia is selling Iran arms so they can attack Israel. Do not be an innocent bystander. Rabbis, sign both petitions. It is a mitzvah.

    There is an existing rabbis petition with 244 signatures already against the deal.…/american-rabbis…/

    a great victory for the administration and all its mindless moron-lemming spear-carriers in the Congress, e.g. adam schiff, steve cohen, al franken, kirsten gillibrand, bernie sanders, the twin dunces boxer & feinstein. obama knows very well what he’s doing. to give them the benefit of the doubt, one imagines that these Congressional clowns live largely in a fog of wishful thinking, confusion, and, fantasy (and, for some, self-interest).

    there is not one of these clowns who is stupid enough to risk his or her PERSONAL safety and that of his or her family on a similar agreement. but, for Israel, no problem. “we all wish them well.” “gonna help.” “would like to help.” “want to help.” “not gonna help.”

    “oh, we’ll support sending them tasers and pepper spray.” “let’s give them funding for Iron Dome. no good against iran? oh, well, we meant well. sorry.”

    they are WITHOUT EXCEPTION a disgusting bunch. they don’t even have the good sense to understand the implications for the US. a contemptible, disreputable, repellent lot upon whom history will heap its scorn.
