The visiting UN nuclear watchdog head on Sunday said inspectors from the IAEA would visit Iran's new uranium enrichment plant southwest of Tehran in late October. "I am pleased to say … we agreed that our inspectors would come here on the 25th of October to do the inspection," International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief, Mohamed ElBaradei told a press conference in Tehran.


The date was confirmed by Iran's atomic chief Ali-Akbar Salehi who was also present at the session.


According to Press TV, ElBaradei also spoke of an upcoming meeting of US, French, Russian and Iranian officials on October 19 for talks of possible enrichment of Iran's uranium to a higher grade abroad. "We will have a meeting to discuss the technical details and hopefully we will hammer out an agreement as early as possible," he said.


"We will have a meeting on October 19th with the participation of the United States, Russia, France, and of course the agency will act as a convener of the meeting," the former Egyptian diplomat added.
