Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast, dismissed allegations of nuclear activity at Tehran's Parchin military site as "propaganda" against the country.

During his Tuesday press conference in the capital Tehran, Mehmanparast commented on some recent Western media reports that accuse Tehran of efforts to sanitize evidence of alleged nuclear activities in Parchin.

"Those who have technical knowledge on nuclear issues would know that such propaganda is unjustifiable as evidences are irremovable from an area with nuclear activity," he argued.

Mehmanparast maintained that Parchin is solely used for "conventional military activities" and reiterated, "Such media hypes are neither technically tenable nor regarded as a serious issue by any informed individual."

The Minister referred to the visit by an IAEA mission to Iran in February and pointed out that if the delegation had been patient enough and stayed longer in Iran, it could have inspected Parchin based on a newly agreed modality.

He added that the Iranian side does not oppose another IAEA inspection of Parchin; however such an examination should be conducted within the framework of an agreement between Tehran and the UN nuclear body.

Iran has repeatedly refuted the Western allegations regarding its nuclear energy program, assuring it is a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, giving it the right to develop n-technology for peaceful purposes.
