Iran 'will allow nuclear checks'

Iran will allow snap inspections of its nuclear facilities if the UN Security Council returns the case to its nuclear watchdog, an Iranian official has said.

But Mohammad Saeedi, deputy head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation, said uranium enrichment will continue.

Iran halted snap inspections after the UN's atomic agency, the IAEA, decided to report Iran to the council.

On Friday the IAEA said Iran had failed to meet a council deadline to suspend its uranium enrichment programme.

"If the issue is returned to the International Atomic Energy Agency, we will be ready to allow intrusive inspections," Mr Saeedi told state television on Saturday.

"The enrichment will continue. But regarding the Additional Protocol, we will continue implementing the Additional Protocol as a voluntary measure."

The Additional Protocol of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) allows inspections to be carried out at short notice. Iran halted implementation of the protocol in February.

The US and EU have accused Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons, a charge Iran has strongly denied.

Iran: A Rummy Guide

To borrow a phrase used for Iraq, there are 'things we now know we don't know.'Back in June 2002, as the Bush administration started pushing hard for war with Iraq by focusing on fears of the unknown—terrorists and weapons of mass destruction—Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld explained that when it came to gathering intelligence on such threats, "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." Elaborating, Rumsfeld told a news conference: "There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know."Now there's a crisis brewing with Iran. And the same basic problem applies: what is known, what is suspected, what can be only guessed or imagined? Is danger clear and present or vague and distant? Washington is abuzz now, as it was four years ago, with "sources" talking of sanctions…
