Officials of UN nuclear watchdog fly to Tehran to seek answers on alleged work on atomic arms

A senior official of the U.N. nuclear agency says his team is "ready to go" to Parchin, an Iranian site it suspects could have been used for developing atomic arms, just as soon as Tehran gives the green light for a visit.

Herman Nackaerts of the International Atomic Energy Agency also signaled impatience with Iran's refusal to meet IAEA requests for information on such alleged experiments, telling reporters that talks on how to go about that have "been under negotiations for almost one year."

Iran says it does not want atomic arms.

Nackaerts spoke Wednesday ahead of a trip of his IAEA team to Tehran. There, they will push IAEA requests for access to information, officials and sites the agency thinks may have been used for weapons work.
