The UN’s nuclear agency revealed Sunday that Iran moved towards cooperation in terms of allegations that it is designing atomic weapons.

The development could significantly impact upcoming negotiations in Vienna – due to start February 18 – between Iran and the six world powers.

Iran had earlier promised to clear up “any ambiguities” regarding its uranium enrichment program.

On Saturday, Iran resumed talks with the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In line with the framework, Iran is expected to take six practical measures by this Tuesday – including an additional IAEA visit to an unfinished heavy-water reactor at Arak and another inspection of Gachin Mine in Bandar Abbas Port in southern Iran.

#IRAN : ” IAEA `UN Nuclear Inspector’s’ Visit `Gchine Uranium Mine’ First Time for Nearly Decade”

#AceWorldNews says `IAEA Inspectors‘ Visit `Iranian Uranium Mine

Ace News Desk UN nuclear inspectors visited an Iranian uranium mine for the first time in nearly a decade Wednesday, media in Tehran reported. A three-member team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) went to the Gchine mine near the southern Gulf port of Bandar Abbas, Reuters quoted a spokesman for Iran’s atomic energy organization as saying.

The IAEA last visited the facility in 2005. Allowing the IAEA to go to Gchine was among six steps Iran agreed to under a November 11 cooperation agreement with the UN nuclear watchdog.
