French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Wednesday Tehran wants to be given 24 days’ notice ahead of any inspection of its nuclear facilities under a prospective deal with the major powers. “A lot of things can disappear” in 24 days, the Associated Press quoted him as saying of Iran’s reported insistence that the International Atomic Energy Agency wait for that length of time between a report of a suspected violation and inspectors’ admission to a site. Fabius was speaking on French foreign policy challenges at a Paris-based think tank, the Institute for International and Strategic Affairs. Fabius’ remarks came seven weeks after US President Obama said Iran had “agreed to the most robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime ever negotiated for any nuclear program in history,” referring to a preliminary agreement reached in Lausanne on April 2.
