Iran has barred two inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency from visiting its nuclear facilities, accusing them of filing false information on its nuclear program.
Iran says it has the right to refuse entry to particular inspectors, as part of its agreement with the IAEA. Other inspectors from the Vienna-based UN watchdog will still be allowed access. However, the IAEA rejects Iran's reasons for the ban, saying it fully supports the inspectors' report.
The United States said on Monday that Iran's refusal to cooperate with the international community would only deepen global concern over its nuclear program. But it added that the door was still open for negotiations. On June the 9th, the UN Security Council voted to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.
