The issue of allowing foreign access to Iranian military sites is basically not included in the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), was quoted by the Tasnim news agency as saying.

In the past, there were some cases of inspecting Iran's military sites such as Parchin, which was once inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Kamalvandi said.

Currently, the IAEA has not made any call for inspecting another Iranian military site, he added.

He emphasized that the Islamic republic will not allow access to its military sites again by foreign parties, including the IAEA.
