DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran on Tuesday rejected a U.S. call to grant U.N. inspectors access to a nuclear site, saying Washington was not qualified to demand inspections without condemning a sabotage attack on the facility, Iranian state media reported.

According to the Iranian state media agency IRNA, Mohammad Eslami (head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization) stated that countries who did not condemn terrorist attacks against Iran’s nucleus were not permitted to comment on inspections.

On Monday, the United States stated that Iran had to stop refusing access to the U.N. Nuclear Watchdog at a centrifuge workshop as per agreements made two weeks ago. Otherwise the United States would face diplomatic retaliation during the Board of Governors meeting of the agency.

One of the four cameras from International Atomic Energy Agency was damaged in an apparent sabotage attack in June. The workshop was making components for centrifuges that can enrich uranium. Iran removed them and the destroyed camera’s footage is missing
