      IAEA Inspectors Arrive in Iran


      Eyewitness News reports a team of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived in Tehran on Saturday, another step towards implementing a landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers which was finalized last week, according to the semi-official Fars News agency.

      The team, led by nuclear engineer Massimo Aparo, says Eyewitness News, will begin reporting to the IAEA on Monday, marking the official start of the deal, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

      Under the terms of the agreement with the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany, Iran will stop work on some portions of its nuclear program in exchange for relief from some international sanctions which have damaged the country's economy, adds Eyewitness News.

      Eyewitness News notes the IAEA team will visit the Natanz and Fordow nuclear facilities to ensure that Iran will stop enriching uranium to 20 percent and that its stockpile of enriched uranium is diluted, according to Fars News.
