IAEA seeks high-level Iran visit

VIENNA – The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog wants to send a high-level mission to Iran to seek “clarifications regarding possible military dimensions” to its nuclear programme, Voice of America reports. International Atomic Energy Agency’s chief Yukiya Amano said Thursday he put the request in writing to Iran’s top nuclear officials earlier this month and that he hoped a date could be agreed upon soon. Amano spoke Thursday at the opening of a two-day meeting by the IAEA’s 35-nation board of directors in Vienna. The meeting is the first for the agency since it alleged last week there is “credible” evidence Tehran is trying to build nuclear weapons.
