Iran nuclear crisis : UN warns process will 'take time'

Friday, 29 November 2013 - 12:53

The head of the UN's nuclear agency, Yukiya Amano, has warned it will "take some time" before work can begin on verifying whether Iran is complying with a deal on its nuclear programme.

Iran agreed last week to curb some nuclear activities for six months in return for sanctions relief.

The deal requires increased UN inspections of Iran's nuclear sites including the Arak heavy water plant.

Amano said he could not yet tell when the inspections would begin.
