UN nuclear chief says deal with Iran reached
The chief of the U.N. nuclear agency says he has reached a deal with Iran on probing suspected work on nuclear weapons and adds that the agreement will "be signed quite soon. "
Yukiya Amano says some details still need to be worked out. But he tells reporters that Iranian officials say that those will not stand in the way of signing the deal.
Amano spoke today on return from Tehran, after talks on resuming a long-stalled probe into suspicions that Iran secretly worked on developing nuclear weapons.
The investigation has been stalled for more than four years, with Iran saying it has never carried out such experiments. Iran denies that it is interested in nuclear weapons, saying it wants nuclear power only to generate energy.
