U.N. inspecting nuclear facilities
Two inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency arrived in Iran to inspect the country’s nuclear facilities, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
Iran’s parliament urged the government in late December to reexamine its ties with the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog after the U.N. Security Council imposed sanctions against Tehran over its disputed nuclear program.
The two IAEA inspectors were conducting routine investigations of Iran’s nuclear facilities in the cities of Esfahan and Natanz, the report said. They were expected to stay about a week.
