VIENNA, June 25 (UPI) -- An International Atomic Energy Agency team has been invited by Iran to help the Middle Eastern nation clarify its nuclear program to the rest of the world.
Iranian Supreme National Security Council official Ali Larijani recently traveled to Vienna to visit with IAEA Director Mohamed ElBaradei and invited an IAEA team, Alalam Satellite News said Monday.
