Iran has dismissed a U.S. demand for United Nations nuclear inspectors to visit its military bases as “merely a dream”.
It also said the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was unlikely to agree anyway.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, last week pressed the IAEA to seek access to Iranian military bases to ensure that they were not concealing activities banned by the 2015 nuclear deal reached between Iran and six major powers.
U.S. President Donald Trump has called the nuclear pact — negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama — “the worst deal ever”. In April, he ordered a review of whether a suspension of nuclear sanctions on Iran was in the U.S. interest.
