Iran Won’t Expel UN Inspectors

Looking to preempt hardliner MPs’ warnings about expelling IAEA inspectors from Iran, the Foreign Ministry has issued a statement Monday insisting that they have absolutely no intention of expelling any of the inspectors, despite it being the law.

Iran’s parliament demanded full US sanctions relief by February 21, with all IAEA inspectors otherwise being kicked out. That was a big ultimatum, opposed by the Rouhani government when it was proposed. Now officials say they’re not going to do it anyhow.

Since expelling inspectors would provoke a huge international backlash, that’s probably a relief to a lot of people. At the same time, it’s likely that this will spark a new hardliner versus reformer battle among Iranian political factions.
