VIENNA (Reuters) – The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog urged Iran on Tuesday to allow agency experts to return to a military site called Parchin, which they inspected once but have since been barred from returning to.

&#34I would also ask Iran to support the agency”s efforts to pursue further its investigation of the Lavizan-Shian and Parchin sites,&#34 Mohamed ElBaradei said in a statement, saying that his agency wanted to visit &#34areas of interest&#34 at Parchin.

Parchin and Lavizan are among the sites where the United States suspects Iranian scientists have conducted research related to the development of nuclear weapons.
