Iran's new uranium enrichment plant, whose existence was made public on Friday, was not secret and would operate under the rules of the UN nuclear watchdog, the country's nuclear chief told AFP as the United States, Britain and France demanded immediate access to it.

"This installation is not a secret one, which is why we announced its existence to the IAEA," Ali Akbar Salehi said.

"When I took over the job in July, I committed myself to accelerate cooperation (with the International Atomic Energy Agency) and, within the existing framework of regulations and of our cooperation with the IAEA, we announced the existence of this installation to the agency."
