NBC News — Iran's foreign ministry Tuesday raised prospects that they may allow inspectors from the UN Nuclear Agency to visit a military site where the country is suspected of conducting nuclear-related experiments. A ministry spokesman said the upcoming talks with a delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency could lead to a visit to the suspected site.
The IAEA inspectors are due for talks in Tehran on Wednesday in hopes of restarting a probe into the country's disputed nuclear program. Meanwhile, Iran also confirmed they are converting some of its higher-grade enriched uranium into reactor fuel. The west, including the United States, believe Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon.
