the Situation is more intense between Iran and the UNITED states about a atomaftale.
That Iran chose to withhold a nuclear inspector at the atomfaciliteten Natanz in the last week has hardly made the situation less tense.

Now they have explained themselves to the international atomic energy agency. It writes the news agency AP.
Iran's representative, Kazem Gharibabadi, explained the decision at a special called meeting at the agency's headquarters in Vienna on Thursday.
Here he told that the female nuclear inspector had been tested positive for explosive nitrates', which is a kind of fertilizer that can be used to make explosives.
He explained, however, why he believes she tested positive for the substance, but he said that she went to the restroom, while she waited for test number two, and here she had apparently removed the substance again.
The international atomic energy agency has not commented on the announcement.
