Abstract: Brazil appears to have won a months-long stare-down with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding full access to its nuclear-energy program. IAEA inspectors arrived at a Brazilian nuclear-development site on Oct. 19 with the understanding that they would be permitted to see less than they had been bargaining for. Putting a best face on the limitation, an agency spokesperson in Vienna said the inspectors would not need total access. The IAEA, in backing down, is treading a fine political line in giving Brazil some slack on much the same issue it is pressing Iran on. Brazil took the opportunity to emphasize its persuasive powers with official comments that the agency had become "more flexible." Seeking to offset the statement, IAEA spokesperson Melissa Fleming said, "We will not compromise on our fundamental technical requirements that will allow us to ensure there is no diversion of nuclear materials out of that plant."
