Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano will travel to Tehran next week for talks on inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites.
The IAEA’s press office said on Friday that Amano will hold talks with senior Iranian officials in Tehran on Monday with the aim of “strengthening dialog and cooperation.”
On November 5, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said the IAEA chief will visit Iran on November 11. He expressed hope that Iran and the IAEA would reach an agreement and issue a joint statement.
Salehi also stated that Iranian Ambassador to the IAEA Reza Najafi would lead the Iranian team in talks with the agency.
Iran and the UN nuclear agency wrapped up two days of negotiations in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on October 29, which was described afterwards by both sides as “very productive.”
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi had presented the Islamic Republic’s new approach to its nuclear energy program in a meeting with Amano on October 28.
