Envoys to tour 2 key Iranian nuclear facilities
31 mins ago
TEHRAN, Iran – Seven international envoys are getting a look inside two key Iranian nuclear sites in a tour that Tehran hopes will build support ahead of more talks on its disputed atomic work.
In a blow to the effort, key powers Russia, China and the European Union refused the invitation. The EU said it should be up to inspectors from the U.N. atomic agency to verify whether Iran's program is entirely peaceful. The United States was not invited.
The U.S. and some of its allies accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons, a charge Iran denies.
