Iran Blocks Inspectors From Accessing Nuclear Site Images As Vienna Deal Looms

It appears that Iran may be applying some last-minute leverage just ahead of the final round of nuclear talks in Vienna, and at a moment it's being widely reported that the main parties, including the US, are on the cusp of agreeing on a deal as final documents are being drafted. Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf on Sunday announced that IAEA inspectors will no longer have access to surveillance images of the country's nuclear sites.

"From May 22 and with the end of the three-month agreement, the agency will have no access to data collected by cameras inside the nuclear facilities agreed under the agreement," Qalibaf said as announced in state television.

Iran’s hard-line parliament in December approved a bill that would suspend part of U.N. inspections of its nuclear facilities if European signatories did not provide relief from oil and banking sanctions by February. The IAEA struck a three-month deal with Iran to have it hold the surveillance images, with Tehran threatening to delete them afterward if no deal had been reached.

Underscoring how significant a "threat" to the West and its allies ending all site monitoring procedures would be, Israel has previously said this would be a 'red line' showing the Islamic Republic's intent to pursue nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question now is, what is Israel prepared to do to prevent the from the renewal of the P5+1 agreement?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer is, anything they think they can get away with, including remote bombing of Iran's nuclear sites.
