U.N. nuclear official: 'Good trip' to Iran

VIENNA — A senior U.N. nuclear inspector spoke Wednesday of a "good trip" to Tehran, and the agency said his team will return to Iran's capital in late February, indicating progress on attempts to investigate suspicions that Iran is secretly working on nuclear weapons.

The International Atomic Energy Agency's announcement of a renewed mission to Tehran Feb. 21 came just hours after the return of a senior team and word from the team leader that a new trip was planned "in the very near future."

Neither the IAEA's formal statement nor mission head Herman Nackaerts gave details on what the agency's experts may have achieved. But any headway would be significant after more than three years of Iranian stonewalling on attempts to investigate the allegations.

Nackaerts spoke of "three days of intensive discussions," telling reporters at Vienna airport that while "there still is a lot of work to be done," the IAEA is "committed to resolve all the outstanding issues, and the Iranians said they are committed, too."

Asked how the visit was, he replied, "we had a good trip."
