Unclear Weapon: Two Key Issues IAEA Chief Want To Discuss With Iran During His Visit Today.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will hold talks with Iranian officials on Sunday in a bid to calm tensions over the country's nuclear program, which has provoked Western outrage.

This is the first visit by Iran's IAEA chief Rafael Grossi to Iran since the country's new radical president Ebrahim Raisi came to power last month.

During his one-day visit, the IAEA chief will meet with the Iranian vice president, and their talks will focus on their talks with the Iranian nuclear chief.

The president will try to calm down Iran's nuclear program, which the West has expressed concern about.

Mr. Grossi will need clarification on two key issues; The first is the fossil uranium at the country's nuclear plant, which Iran has not commented on.

The second step is to re-enter the International Atomic Energy Agency, according to reports.

Ebrahim Raisi was elected in June and is seen by Western leaders as a extremist

The Iranian government has begun violating an international agreement on uranium enrichment after former US President Donald Trump pulled out of the deal and imposed sanctions on the country.

Talks on the possibility of reviving Iran's 2015 nuclear deal have been suspended since June.

All efforts to revive the deal have so far failed and Iran has refused to call on the West to return to talks.

The IAEA is now concerned about its ability to monitor Iran's nuclear program.

The visit of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to Iran on Sunday will precede the IAEA Board of Directors meeting on Monday.

Mr Grossi will hold a press conference at Vienna airport as soon as he returns from a visit to Iran.

While Iran is adamant that its nuclear program is peaceful and non-military, the West accuses it of doing the same, and sees it as trying to build nuclear weapons.
