UN Nuclear Team To Visit Iran Next Month

IAEA Director-General Muhammad el-Baradei (L) and Ali Larijani in Vienna earlier this month (official site) June 30, 2007 -- A team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will visit Iran next month to discuss how to resolve questions about Tehran's disputed nuclear program.

Iran's ISNA news agency said today that the visit would take place on July 11-13.

The IAEA last week said Iran had invited it to send a team after Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, agreed a "plan of action" for clearing up issues with the United Nations agency.
