Optimism in Iran with visit of IAEA chief
The Iranian capital is abuzz with the visit of the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano.
It was a seemingly last minute decision by Amano, and among the high profile leaders the IAEA chief met with were Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, Al Shamkhani.
Amano's visit comes as Iran and world powers intensify talks to hammer out a potential final agreement in Vienna.
His visit, although an official one, came as a surprise, as it was announced by the authorities only hours before it happened.
