Exclusive: Rice – Iran cannot avoid inspections of suspicious sites

National Security Advisor Susan Rice speaks during an interview about the recent nuclear deal reached with Iran at the White House in WashingtonBy Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Iran will have no way to avoid inspections of military or other sites that the United States and its allies deem suspicious when a nuclear pact sealed this week goes into effect, U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday. Rice, in an interview with Reuters, said the deal would not give Iran any room to oppose inspections if Washington or others had information believed to reveal a secret site that they took to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for review. If Iran refuses access but five of the eight international signatories to the deal demand an investigation under a newly created joint commission, Iran must comply, she said.
