To address the question of the IRI's cooperation with the IAEA, I have assembled a list of instances showing that the IRI has continuously refused to allow the UNSC-mandated inspections: Diplomats: Iran has means to test bomb in 6 months - Salon.com "With the U.N. nuclear agency strictly limited in its nuclear monitoring of Iran, the existence of a hidden enrichment site that could supply the weapons-grade uranium needed for a nuclear weapons test is also possible. International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed Elbaradei has repeatedly warned that his agency cannot guarantee that Iran is not hiding nuclear activities. Iranian nuclear expert David Albright on Friday put the chances that such a secret site exists at "50-50." Iran, Syria violate UN sanctions banning arms transfer, members say : Middle East World "Sawers said Iran had "no plausible civilian use" for most of the centrifuges. "Iran has also refused access to IAEA inspectors to the heavy water reactor at Arak, for the second time in a row," Sawers said. "This is of particular concern because the reactor's design at Arak is ideally suited to producing plutonium, which could be used for nuclear weapons."" Iran's Denials of Design Information and Verification: More Cause for International Concern - U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna "Irans refusal to provide early design information for new nuclear facilities and its denial of inspections at a key facility are cause for international concern for three reasons. First, they continue a trend of Iran increasingly withholding cooperation from the IAEA. Second, they raise further questions about the nature of Irans activities and intentions of its leadership. Third, they constitute further violations of Irans international obligations. New Instances of Iran Withholding Information and Cooperation. Irans leaders have taken steps that have increasingly limited the effectiveness of IAEA inspections. Irans leaders have: - stopped implementing the IAEAs Additional Protocol, a protocol accepted by 112 other countries which provides inspectors enhanced access to information and facilities; - denied entrance to Iran for some fifty IAEA inspectors, including senior inspectors with valuable experience and knowledge related to Irans nuclear program; - refused to permit IAEA interviews of key individuals associated with Irans nuclear activities; - refused to provide key information about Irans relationship to the A.Q. Khan network, an illicit market in nuclear technology; - refused to turn over or provide a copy of a fifteen-page document, obtained from the A.Q. Khan network, related to the manufacture of nuclear weapons components; and, - refused to address connections between studies on uranium conversion to high explosives testing (an important step in nuclear weapons design) and the design of a missile re-entry vehicle." ----------------- To those with any intelligence whatsoever, these are just a few of the hundreds of sites listing the IRI's refusal to allow the legally required IAEA inspections, which would then preclude their ability to obtain evidence that they are, as most of the World suspects, building nuclear weapons.
