Iran rejects IAEA surveillance cameras


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Iran will not allow the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog to install surveillance cameras at a nuclear site.

Iran rejected a request from the International Atomic Energy Agency to install the cameras at the Natanz site, the Associated Press reported Thursday, citing unnamed diplomats.

An IAEA report released Friday found that Iran has stepped up its production of nuclear fuel and now has 7,200 installed centrifuges, which reportedly could fuel two nuclear weapons a year, at its underground bunker in Natanz.

Iran also recently denied nuclear inspectors access to the site when they arrived for a surprise visit, the AP reported.
