UN nuclear agency to meet on Iran pact Jan 24
VIENNA (AP) -- Diplomats say the U.N. nuclear agency will meet Jan. 24 on its role in supervising Iranian adherence to terms of a landmark pact reached between Tehran and six world powers.
The date was shared with The Associated Press by two diplomats from member countries of the U.N's International Atomic Energy Agency. They demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal it before a formal IAEA announcement.
The Nov. 24 deal commits Tehran to curb its nuclear programs in exchange for initial sanctions relief over six months as the two sides work toward a permanent agreement.
The accord designates the IAEA to oversee Iranian compliance with terms of the deal. The 35-nation IAEA board is expected to approve that role at the Jan. 24 meeting.
