Iran to suspend nuclear inspections in IAEA dispute

[JURIST] Iranian officials have approved the basic outlines of a "single-urgency" bill providing for the suspension of Iran's voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol [IAEA report] to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) [text]. Mahmoud Mohammadi, a member of the Iranian commission that approved the changes, said the government would suspend the Additional Protocol "if the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) [official website] reports Iran's nuclear case to the UN Security Council." Last month over 70% of Iranian MPs voted to support such a measure [JURIST report]. Arabic News has more.
