IAEA head to visit Tehran ahead of deadline on suspending inspections

The head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog will travel to Tehran on Saturday, Iran’s ambassador to the organization says, days before a looming deadline set by the Iranian government for the suspension of some inspections.

Kazem Gharibabadi tweets that International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Rafael Grossi will “travel to Tehran on Saturday for technical discussions with the Atomic Energy Organization on how to continue cooperation in the light of new arrangements.”
