Iran has accused the UN on Wednesday of trying to spy on the country with the construction near its border of a new seismic monitoring station designed to detect tremors from nuclear explosions.
Construction was completed last week at the monitoring station, located in Turkmenistan between the Karakum Desert and the Kopet Dag mountain range, just a few kilometres from the Iranian border.
It is one of 337 facilities belonging to the International Monitoring System and overseen by the Vienna-based Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, or CTBTO.
