Report: Iran, UN nuclear chief reach inspection deal
'Road map' agreement could boost broader international negotiations over Tehran's nuclear program
November 11, 20134:35AM ETUpdated 9:00AM ET
Iranian state TV reported Monday that a deal for expanded monitoring has been reached in talks with the United Nations' nuclear chief — an agreement that could boost wider international negotiations over Tehran's atomic program.
The report said the deal was struck Monday in talks with the head of the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano.
It is a so-called road map that will give U.N. inspectors a broader reach, including access to a heavy-water reactor under construction and a key uranium mine.
The talks in Tehran came after envoys from Iran and world powers failed over the weekend to reach an accord in Geneva on efforts to ease Western concerns that Iran could one day develop nuclear weapons — an intent that Iran denies.
