IAEA team in Iran
A team of technical, legal and political directors from the UN nuclear watchdog arrived in Tehran on Wednesday to draw up a framework to resolve the outstanding issues relating to Iran's nuclear program.
The team is led by the International Atomic Energy Agency's safeguards chief, Olli Heinonen. According to IRIB, the IAEA director for safeguards operations, Herman Nackartes, its legal advisor, Johan Rautenbach, and director in charge of the agency's external relations and policy coordination, Vilmos Cxerveny, are other members of the team.
The team is expected to hold talks with Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani.
The IAEA team is in Tehran to design a formula to resolve the dispute with IAEA on Iranian nuclear works. The idea to draw up the framework was raised by Larijani while he was in Madrid, Spain, last month for talks with the European Union Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana.
