Iran: Iran set to name date for uranium enrichment plant inspection

FOCUS Information Agency - Iran will soon inform the U.N. nuclear watchdog of a timetable for inspection of a newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant, its atomic energy agency chief was quoted as saying.

State Press TV said Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, made the comment late on Monday, three days before crucial talks between Tehran and world powers worried about the Islamic state's nuclear ambitions.

"Yes, the inspectors will come and inspect," Salehi said, adding Tehran was in constant contact with the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

"We are working out a timetable for the inspection and we will soon be writing a letter to them about the location of the facility and others," he said, without elaborating.
