Senior Nuclear Weapons Experts on the Team
The IAEA nuclear inspectors arrived in Tehran early Sunday local time for a mission expected to focus on Iran's alleged attempt to develop nuclear weapons.
The IAEA team includes two senior weapons experts - Jacques Baute of France and Neville Whiting of South Africa. The high-level delegation is led by IAEA Deputy Director General Herman Nackaerts. Also on the team is Rafael Grossi, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano's principal aid. The composition of the team suggests that IAEA may expect the Iranians to be ready to discuss questions about parts of their program that IAEA suspects to be nuclear weapons-related.
