Iran on Tuesday said that a request by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect the Parchin military base near Tehran would be possible if the country's right to a nuclear program were acknowledged.

"We are ready to reach a comprehensive agreement with the IAEA, including acknowledgment of Iran's legitimate rights, and in that case also the inspection of Parchin could be one of the agreements," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters in Tehran.
