Iran constitutional council approved bill to block nuclear inspectors
Cody Harding at 12:00 AM ET

On December 3, 2005, Iran's Guardian Council approved a bill to prevent inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), with the prohibition on inspections set to become active whenever Iran is reported to the UN Security Council for potential sanctions. The bill was approved by the Iranian Parliament's lower house in November 2005. In December 2006, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on Iran for its violations, and the Iranian Parliament voted to review their country's cooperation with the IAEA in light of the new sanctions. However, conflict between the IAEA and Iranian officials has continued in subsequent years.
