And its not the IAEA making the demands, its America.
HEADLINE: IAEA Wants Access to Iran Military Site
INTRO: The International Atomic Energy Agency says it is making progress in tracking down the sources of contamination found on equipment in Iran. But the U.N. nuclear watchdog is calling for Iran to allow inspection of key sites to verify whether the Islamic republic's nuclear program is purely peaceful, as Tehran claims. Marlene Smith reports for VOA from IAEA headquarters in Vienna.
What you are saying is that they should do what America demands no matter if they have rights or not.

Your link is two years old. Things have changed since.
While the IAEA cannot now confirm the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities, that is a challenging determination that takes considerable time and requires enhanced inspections not now accepted by Iran.

Im sorry but that link is nearly 3 years old now - the IAEA have been to those sites allready.
VIENNA, Aug. 31 — The global nuclear monitoring agency deepened suspicions on Thursday about Iran’s nuclear program, reporting that inspectors had discovered new traces of highly enriched uranium at an Iranian facility.
Inspectors have found such uranium, which at extreme enrichment levels can fuel bombs, twice in the past. The International Atomic Energy Agency concluded that at least some of those samples came from contaminated equipment that Iran had obtained from Pakistan.
But in this case, the nuclear fingerprint of the particles did not match the other samples, an official familiar with the inspections said, raising questions about their origin.

Oh yes he made clear his desires for what should become of the country, but he did not make clear if Iran plans to take action to see that it gets there. Whether the development of the Israel state was right or wrong is not the issue here. The fact is that it's there, and is recognized on an international level, no matter how much the rest of the ME region dislikes it. As far as I see it he did not answer the question at all.
What we say is that to solve the 60-year problem we must allow the Palestinian people to decide about its future for itself. This is compatible with the spirit of the Charter of the United Nations and the fundamental principles enshrined in it. We must allow Jewish Palestinians, Muslim Palestinians and Christian Palestinians to determine their own fate themselves through a free referendum. Whatever they choose as a nation everybody should accept and respect. Nobody should interfere in the affairs of the Palestinian nation. Nobody should sow the seeds of discord. Nobody should spend tens of billions of dollars equipping and arming one group there.
We say allow the Palestinian nation to decide its own future, to have the right to self-determination for itself. This is what we are saying as the Iranian nation.
The Iranian nation is a cultured nation. It is a civilized nature. It seeks, it wants, new talks and negotiations. It's for it. We believe that in negotiations and talks, everything can be resolved very easily. We don't need threats; we don't need to point bombs or guns; we don't need to get into conflict if we talk. We have a clear logical about that.

As far as playing on the same team... I kinda doubt it. Iran isn't as susceptible to penetration of "The Owners" simply because it does have strong fundamentalist roots.
