UN nuke chief planning trip to Iran

Posted:

Two diplomats say the head of the U.N. atomic agency is planning a trip to Tehran to push for long-delayed interviews with Iranian scientists linked to alleged past work on nuclear arms.


   International Atomic Energy chief Yukiya Amano would be traveling less than a month before an Oct. 15 deadline to gather information on allegations that Iran tried to build atomic weapons.


   A final IAEA assessment due in December will feed into the larger July 14 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, and will help determine whether sanctions on Iran will be lifted.


   The diplomats told The Associated Press Friday that Amano might leave for Tehran as early as this weekend. The agency said Amano is considering a visit but details are not yet final.
