Iran allows IAEA to visit nuclear site


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Iran has allowed international inspectors to visit a nuclear reactor.

Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency last week inspected the nuclear reactor at Arak, for the first time in a year, according to reports. 

Unnamed Iranian diplomats also told several news services on Thursday that Iran has also agreed to allow the IAEA to monitor the Natanz uranium enrichment nuclear plant.

The reactor is capable of producing low-grade uranium; U.N. inspectors suspect that Iran is seeking the means to produce highly enriched uranium, suitable for a bomb.
